Hi! I have another fun quilting tutorial for you today! We'll be making this cute quilt-as-you-go book cover from start to finish.
For this project you will need:
It's also super beginner friendly, teaches basic quilt as you go techniques including binding! For more information on the measurements and supplies visit my blog post: http://tinyurl.com/quiltasyougobookcover
Supplies: 11” x 17” Backing fabric** 11” x 17” Batting** Several scrap fabric strips at least 2" longer than your book cover width. 2 – 2.5” x WOF strips for binding (May vary depending on the size of your book. To determine binding, add the measurements for all 4 sides of your quilt piece. Then add 12” to that total to account for corners.) 1 Button elastic hair tie Soft measuring tape Scissors Fabric Adhesive (I like 505 Temporary Fabric Adhesive) Rotary trimmer (I like the Olfa Splash 45mm Rotary Cutter) Self Healing Cutting Mat (I have a Fiskars 18”x24” light blue mat) Clear Acrylic Ruler Coordinating thread (I’m using Aurifil 50wt natural white) Straight pins (I like glass head straight pins) Sewing machine
** If you are measuring for your own book add 1” to the height and 2” to the width of your book so that you will have some leeway in trimming. Trim your finished quilted piece 1/2” larger than the height of your book, and 1.5” wider.
I hope you enjoy it! Make sure to tag me if you use this tutorial to create your own projects!
I hope this helps inspire and encourage you all in your homeschooling journey as well!
