The description of Simple DIY Fabric Scraps Patchwork

Learn to make a simple and adorable patchwork quilt in only 10 easy steps.

A throw is handy. You can snuggle up with it on the sofa when you read a book or watch a movie, use it as a picnic blanket, a baby blanket, or even as a tablecloth overlay.

Tools and Materials

   Same-size cut fabric samples or fabric blocks
   Fabric for backing (ideally cotton duck, twill or canvas)
   Strong and durable contrasting thread

   Sewing machine
   Iron and ironing board

Step 1

Pick your samples and backing fabric. I like to use printed cotton pieces for the top panel and a good heavy cotton duck for the back panel. If you pick fabrics of the same fabrication (here I use cotton), it will be easier to sew them together and they will launder nicely. Make sure the fabric samples are the same size and only as thick as your sewing machine can handle. I keep all of my scrap fabrics and samples in bins and organized by color. If you do not have hoards of fabric to choose from like I do, go to your favorite fabric store or decorator and ask for their discontinued samples. You may have to purchase them, but a lot of stores will give discontinued fabrics away rather than send them to the landfill.

Step 2

Arrange the pieces for the top panel on the floor. As you lay them out, be creative, choose which samples you would like to see next to one another and choose fun combinations as you plan your mosaic of fabrics. As you form the rows, decide then how large to make the throw. Three or four rows is a good place to start depending on the size of the pieces. If this is your first patchwork project, go with a more manageable size and save the large project for when you have more experience.

Step 3

Form the rows by sewing pieces together and zigzag topstitching the seams. Start on the right side of the top row and flip the end piece on top of the next in line to the left. Pick the two pieces up and sew together with a half-inch seam allowance. Flip the bottom piece on top of the next in line and sew those together, and so on and so on as you work from right to left, until the pieces to make a row are all sewn together. Turn over the sewn row and zigzag topstitch each seam with a contrasting thread (you can match if you want to), making sure the undersides of the seams go to one side (matters not which side) as you stitch. This flattens the seams and keeps raw edges from unraveling when laundering. Since the pieces are small, I don’t even worry about pinning, I just simply sew together and turn over to topstitch. Place each finished row back into place on the floor to keep your project in order.

Step 4

Pin finished rows together. With each row lined up in order on the floor, flip the top panel back and place over the second row matching the bottom edge (of the top row) to the top edge of the second row. Pin together along the top edge. Flip the pinned rows back so that the bottom of the second row matches up with the top of the third row. Pin together. Repeat until all rows are pinned together. If you are unsure of the order you are pinning them together, flip the whole pinned together pieces right side out and correct any mistakes.

Step 5

Sew rows together, removing pins as you go.
