Quilting is an extraordinarily beautiful technique that our ancestors have learned. Today it is also common and known all over the world, only now carries the name - sewing in the style of "patchwork".Textile products from shreds look very bright and beautiful, but they radiate comfort and warmth. Today we will tell you how to sew a quilt by yourself.

We decided to sew a baby quilt and for this we need the following materials:
- Cloth for flaps. In order for the blanket to look bright, you should take a fabric of contrasting colors and different patterns. But for beginners, it's easier to use two or three contrasting colors.
- Tools for sewing: sewing machine, scissors, pins and needles, centimeter tape, thread and iron.
- Batting or sintepon for lining.
- Fabric for the lower fabric.
Sequence of tailoring
We will sew a blanket measuring 1 * 1 meter, for this we cut 42 squares measuring 10 * 10 centimeters from flaps. You can choose any size of blanket and the size of the flaps, it can be large, small or medium. At this stage, everything depends on your imagination. After you cut the squares, arrange them in the order in which you are going to stitch.
Next we need to sew all the squares. To not confuse anything, they can first be pinned together or light threads can be made with threads.
For greater convenience, the squares are sewn first vertically, so that in the end we have such strips here.
The patchwork quilt does not tolerate any inaccuracies, if one square is obliquely attached, then all will go and symmetry is broken, so be extremely attentive in the process of work. After assembling the flaps, all the seams must be ironed, so that the fabric does not stretch.
When we have sewn all the strips together, proceed to the lining of the blanket. We use sintepon to heat the product. We cut off exactly the same piece of sintepon as our upper part of the blanket, and immediately cut off the fabric for the lower fabric. We put first the lower part, then the sintepon and the upper part from above. We take the product with pins or threads, so that the fabric does not "go".
Sew our blanket, spreading it through and through diagonally.
Now proceed to the edging. Cut out four strips 110 centimeters long and 5 centimeters wide, fold in half and tuck in to the front of the blanket, as shown in the picture.
Then bend the edge to the wrong side, grab it with a thread and stitch it from the inside.
That's it, the original and beautiful quilt is ready. We hope that our master class inspired you to create such a product.
