Making a Pieced Patchwork Quilt

 

About Pieced & Patchwork Quilts - These type of quilts can be very easy and some can be very difficult.  Each of these quilts can be quilted by machine, by hand, or by knotting.
Best Fabric to Use - The best type of fabric to use for these type of quilts would be light and medium weight cottons.  DO NOT use a fabric that stretches.
Easy type of Pattern - An easy type of pattern would be one that you will see A LOT of pictures of  in the photo section. It is simply sewing squares in rows and then sewing the row together to make a quilt top.  There is a link below for a free colored photographed directions for an easy pieced quilt to make.
Difficult type of Pattern - A more difficult type would be squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, and different size shapes to sew together for a quilt. The photo to the right shows a more difficult quilt to make.
Cost & Fabric Usage - This all depends on how many scraps of fabric you have laying around the house.  If you have plenty enough to make squares, rectangles, and triangles to sew together, then the cost will not be too high.  Remember though, you will need a large piece of fabric for your backing, and you will have to purchase batting also.
Comments - It never seems to amaze me the different designs, color schemes, and ideas that people come up with in pieced quilting. There is no other word for it besides amazing!!!  Have fun with colors, textures, and fabrics, and let your creativity go wild!!!

   Quilts come in all kinds of styles, shapes and sizes. When making your quilt, determine and chose your fabrics and designs carefully. An awesome quilt is the scrappy quilt. Scrappy quilts are made out of whatever leftover (or "scrap") fabric is lying around. "Fat Quarters" can be used for this type of quilt also. Sometimes the quilt will have a theme, like "shades of green," or "hearts." No matter what is used, these quilts are very traditional in America and has a charm like no other.
