Spring is here, and that means it’s time to whip out all of those pastel fabrics and get to working on a project that fits the springtime vibe.
This tutorial is exactly that: a fun, bright quilt that embodies what spring is all about. It also has a really cool geometric pattern to it that’s so adorable and really fun to sew!
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company is back at it again with yet another tutorial, this time for the Rickrack quilt. You’ll have a blast making it, and it’s super easy.
Wanna make it yourself? First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. This is what you’ll need.
Stitchin’ Up The Rickrack
Believe it or not, this quilt is surprisingly easy to make. The majority of your block is simply some strips, and the rest are half square triangles. How easy is that?
Each block is made up of two colors: your background fabric and a print/colored fabric of your choice. Cut up your strips like Jenny shows in the video below, then sew up your little half square triangles
Place the half square triangles in between your strips and sew everything all together. Then boom! There’s your block. Now it’s time to finish the quilt top.
Obviously you can arrange the blocks however you’d like, but arranging the background fabric toward each other and the printed fabric toward each other gives it that signature look.
Now I’m sure you’re ready to make it yourself. Watch Jenny’s video tutorial below to get started, and happy quilting!
