Finishing the semi improv 9-patch quilt

This is my semi improv nine patch quilt.


I’ve published individual tutorials for each of the blocks and below you’ll have the instructions to finish it:

And the quilt back.

Quilt top

Now you have completed all blocks it’s time to arrange them.

Lay them on the floor and place them in a way that is pleasing to you.

Stitch together in rows.

Back of the quilt

Get 6 charm squares and the little strips of fabric left from the trimming of the charm squares we used for the top. Cut a few extra trimmings in the strip colours.

Cut seven 4 1/2 in x 5 in rectangles in the background fabric.

Now take one or more trimmings.

Cut the cream rectangle in two. Choose a random spot where to split the rectangle each time.

Place the trimming in between.

Do this for each of the 7 inserts. Then stitch the trimmings.

You can add more than one trimming.

Now stitch charm squares and inserts in a row. Iron flat.

Now cut two pieces to stitch to each side of the strip. Each piece should be 19 3/4 in x 52 in. Stitch and iron.

Assemble the quilt sandwich and quilt using your preferred method.

I used free motion.

I also used a very quick way to make the binding by machine.
