How-to: Quilt with the Applique Method

Ta dah! And you are done! Wasn’t that easy? It took me two days with many breaks in between to make this 60″ x 90″ quilt. Depending on how intricate your applique quilt is, the time will vary.

Here is the back side of the quilt.

Again, depending on what kinds of article of clothing you are working with, the look and feel of the quilt will be different too. This quilt will be used as a dorm room bed spread and it will hopefully keep her from getting homesick her freshman year.

  1. Thanks for this post. Now I have something to do with all those clothes of ours. I think old baby clothes can also make for a great quilt. It’s also a nice gift idea. Maybe for your kid who’s trying to be independent and moving out of your house.

    1. That’s exactly what this quilt was for – a girl who is going off to college. These were her favorite clothes she wore but too small now and her mom sent them all to me for the quilt. The girl was quite surprised to see what she thought were donated were made into a quilt for her to take to school.

      Baby clothes made into a quilt is a great gift! You can never have enough blankies. πŸ™‚
