9 Plus 1 Table Quilt Tutorial

For the past little bit I have been fussing over and re-doing a few things in the living room.  You can see the reveal here.

One of the projects was to make a co-ordinating table quilt.  I had already updated the pillows and moved things around, and this was kind of the last thing on the list to do to make the room pretty finished.

I had leftovers from the pillows and thought that they would be perfect to make the small quilt with.  The fabric is heavier- designer weight and a linen type weave.

After sewing with the fabric and finishing the quilting, I found out that the linen has a bit of a streatch to the weave.  It did give me some grief and in the future when sewing squares with this fabric I believe I would use pins more!  This is definitly not a precise fabric to sew with and really just goes where it likes.

Be aware of your fabric when you are sewing!  Not that it wouldn’t work, just that you can make any kind of adjustments before it’s too late.

6)  Sew the rows together to make the top.

8)  Quilt as you like. I kept things simple and quilted an X in the large squares and a line down the center of the other pieces.
