Quilt is approximately 48″ by 56″
Today is my day on the By Popular Demand Fabric Tour. I used the quilting cottons of this fabric line along with some basics to create the By Popular Demand Quilt Pattern which is a free pattern to use with the fabrics!
By Popular Demand Quilt Pattern
1/4 yard of 12 different fabrics in 4 color ways (I used navy, teal, grey and white.)
1/3 yard for quilt binding
Rotary Cutter and Mat
BY POPULAR DEMAND QUILT PATTERN
Step 1: Take all 1/4 yards and cut each one fabric into 4.5″ squares. Because it depends on how you arrange each row, you will have extra squares of each of the fabrics.
Step 3: Starting with the first row stitch each of the 4.5″ squares together to make up row one. Do that by placing the first square on top of the second square with RST and stitch using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seams to one side. Then add square 3 and so on until all of row #1 is done.
Step 4: Continue will the rest of the 13 rows the same as you did in step 3. It’s best to press the seam allowances on each row a different way to be able to nest seams as you are sewing the rows together.
Step 5: When all the rows are stitched together and pressed, it’s time to attach the rows together. Place row #1 on top of row #2 and stitch the rows together using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Step 6: Stitch rows #3 and #4 together as you did in step 5. It keeps the quilt more square to sew two rows at a time. Continue until all rows are sewn in sets of two.
Step 7: Now it’s time to sew each of the sets of rows together. Start with rows #1 and #2 and place them on top of rows #3 and #4 and stitch together. Continue until the whole quilt top is sewn together.
Step 8: When your quilt top is finished, press all the seams to the rows all the same direction.
Step 9: Baste and quilt your quilt as desired. Then bind your quilt.
Happy Quilt Making!
