Finishing the semi improv 9-patch quilt

This is the entire finished quilt.

See all tutorials that make this quilt.

And the quilt back.

Quilt top

Now you have completed all blocks it’s time to arrange them.

Lay them on the floor and place them in a way that is pleasing to you.

Stitch together in rows.

Back of the quilt

Get 6 charm squares and the little strips of fabric left from the trimming of the charm squares we used for the top. Cut a few extra trimmings in the strip colours.

Cut seven 4 1/2 in x 5 in rectangles in the background fabric.

Now take one or more trimmings.

Cut the cream rectangle in two. Choose a random spot where to split the rectangle each time.

Place the trimming in between.

Do this for each of the 7 inserts. Then stitch the trimmings.

You can add more than one trimming.

Now stitch charm squares and inserts in a row. Iron flat.

Now cut two pieces to stitch to each side of the strip. Each piece should be 19 3/4 in x 52 in. Stitch and iron.

Assemble the quilt sandwich and quilt using your preferred method.

I used free motion.

I also used a very quick way to make the binding by machine.
