Making quilting a family affair

I’ve been working on a super-secret quilt. Correction, my mom, cousin and I have been working on a super-secret quilt.

My mom and cousin are learning to sew, so we got together for a family sewing day over the winter. My mom wanted to work on her first quilted table runner and my cousin wanted to learn how to make a pillow cover for her dad.

But we also worked on a quilt for my sister who is expecting her first child. I found a giraffe panel that was just adorable and fits with the jungle theme of her nursery. I got a few coordinating prints to use as borders to make the quilt as easy as possible to piece.

I taught my mom and and cousin to use a ruler, rotary cutter and sew a quarter-inch seam. In one afternoon they pieced the top and then I quilted it.

My sister really was surprised to see a quilt made by all three of us and I’m glad the baby will have a quilt made by all his family members.

    1. Cathy,

      There isn’t really a pattern. I just squared up the panel, cut 2 inch borders to go around the panel and then 4 inch borders to go around the first border. The length of your borders will vary based on the size of your panel. Good luck!
