- 1 and 1/2 yard of pre-quilted 1 layer white diamond stitched fabric
- 3 yards of minky fabric
- 1 package of quillting loft, crib size
- all colors of machine embroidery thread
- embroidery machine
I choose (from my embroidery cd image patterns) alphabet letters from the Winnie The Pooh alpha images collection.
The soft, slinky, smooth minky fabric is cut to the size of the top pre-quilted fabric with an added 3 and 1/2 inches around all edges to fold over and hem.
Make your quilt sandwich of the top, the filler, and the backing and either pin together or baste stitch in several areas or do what I do and use temporary fabric spray adhesive. I love this stuff.
Then, with the remainder of the minky fabric I need to cut 5 strips 5"x56". I just cut them all the same length and will trim those needing trimmed. Place on top in appropriate place to form grid of equal spaces. I also use temporary spray fabric adhesive here also. I love this stuff. It's like a pin that doesn't stick you.. Turn 1/2 inch under and stitch two down the quilt between the columns of squares. Do the same with the other 3 strips across between the columns of squares. This attaches all layers together.
Then turn minky fabric edge up over the top, fold under 1/2" and machine quilt stitch all the around all 4 sides. Spray away with the temporary spray fabric adhesive. I love this stuff.
