If you’re a beginner to sewing and are looking for a very easy and fun craft that you can do at home then I recommend you try making a Patchwork Quilt. It’s probably one of the easiest projects you can undertake if you follow the simple directions below. You’ll need a few supplies to make this project, which include a set of thread, cotton fabric and needle and some embellishments to decorate the fabric. There are lots of great resources online where you can find lots of helpful hints and ideas on how to make a Patchwork Quilt, and it will be really rewarding for you if you try it. The patchwork patterns are all very simple and come in a wide range of sizes, colours and textures. So, if you want to learn how to make a patchwork quilt you need to be able to work with a very basic set of patterns. The best way to learn how to make a quilt is to use an easy pattern, and I’ll show you how to do this in just a minute.
The first thing you need to decide when you want to make a patchwork quilt is what type of fabric you want to use. You have many different options including cotton fabric, printed fabric, polyester fabric, old clothes, ribbons, beads, embroidery and so on. I suggest using polyester fabric as it’s the most durable fabric available, and it won’t flake off easily. It’s also incredibly easy to sew with, and there are lots of great ways to use the stitch design.
When you’re ready to begin the project of making a patchwork quilt, you’ll first need to gather your supplies. This includes a piece of cotton fabric that you’ll use as a backing for the quilt. Once you’ve gathered up your materials and decided on the patchwork pattern, you’ll then need to pick a fabric for the back of the quilt. It doesn’t need to be fancy, just something that you think will look great. It’s best to work out how big your finished patchwork quilt will be before you start searching for the right fabric. For example, if you know it will be big enough to cover the bed then you can go shopping for a big pile of contrasting fabrics.
