A Quilt For Barbie!

PDRM0003 I’ve attempted a mini quilt with all my itty bitty  little pieces for fabric. Most of the scraps were from mens shirts which I made aprons from. I cut them into 2” squares.


PDRM0007 I cut a 18”x18”piece of interfacing and layed out my squares. I gently ironed them into place.

PDRM0005 Next I sewed a 1/4” seam down each row, ironed the seams to one side, then sewed the other directions. What an easy way to sew small pieces together! The interfacing held everything in just the right place. I guess if you wanted to hand quilt though, it might make the fabric a little tough to get your need through.


I cut 4” strips to border, machine quilted, then bound with another fabric.

A very fun little project!
