Just One Pack Doll Quilt

Just One Pack Doll Quilt 16in. X 16in.

• 5 inch Charm pack Moda Alliance
• 1 fat quarter Alliance for backing
• scrap batting or flannel X
• 1 pack of 2 inch English Paper Piece Hexagons
• Sewline Glue pen
• tiger tape
• coordinating thread
• basic sewing supplies

• Chose 25 charms from your Alliance pack

• I used the 2 inch pre-made English paper pieces from PaperPieces.com. They are available at your local quilt shop, online or you can cut your own.

• Next I cut 20 charm fabrics about 1/4 inch around the hexagon paper.
• I use Sewline’s glue pen to adhere my fabric while they wait to be pieced together. This is a HUGE time saver.

• This may be difficult to see but I put the glue on the fabric. It is a wash away adhesive.

• Firmly press your fabric to the papers as you go around the hexagons.

• Now the arrangement I did for this quilt also uses half hexagons. Instead of buying another pack of papers for this I cut a regular 2 inch hex in half as shown.
• I was very careful to make sure it was as close to half as possible. You will need 5 half hexagons.

• Again, cut your fabrics 1/4 from the paper edge and glue in place firmly.

• The corners will be trimmed once the quilting is done.

• I layed out my pieces into a pleasing arrangement and then took 2 at a time to sew.

• With Right sides together I whip stitch the edges. I continue to add hexs until you have a top as shown.
• Note the papers are removed before layering. The fabric can be peeled from the paper easily without much distortion. The unsewn edges are basted with a larger stitch to be removed after hand quilting.

• Layer the batting and backing…..

• I hand quilted my doll quilt using 1/4 inch tiger tape as my guide. I am not an expert hand quilter and I tend to do a big stitch. For a doll quilt…this was the effect I wanted.

• Once the hand quilting is complete, I do not bind my quilt in the traditional way.

• Notice that I am folding back the quilt edge to the hand quilting line…

• Trim away the batting to less than an 1/8 of an inch, to reduce bulk.

• Here’s how the edges should look.

•Trim the backing to about 1/4 inch from the quilt top edge as shown.

• Fold the edge in the create a finished edge. Then fold the quilt top up to meet the backing and pin.

• hand whip stitch with a neutral thread and tiny stitches all the way around the quilt edge to finish.
