In preparation for Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage 2 Book release we are showing you how to yarn tie a doll quilt! Sarah is here again to show you this easy, fast way to finish a quilt and add some extra cuteness.
Hey guys! I made my doll quilt to match our doll bed, so it finishes at 12.5” x 21”. Here’s a list of the supplies I used to make my doll quilt.
- One Granny Chic 5” Stacker (or 17 – 5″ squares)
- Fat Quarter of Accent Fabric (SKU# C8522-PINK)
- Fat Eighth of Background Fabric (SKU# C790-150)
- 1/2 yard of Backing Fabric (SKU# C8513-PINK)
- 1/2 yard of Flannel for Batting (SKU# F019-1387)
- Lipstick Chunky Thread (SKU #STCT-10901)
- Large Needle (we used a size 10 needle)
After I had my quilt top done I spray basted it to the flannel batting.
Layer the quilt top on the backing fabric and trim the batting and backing with the edge of the quilt top.
With sides facing, layer the quilt top with the backing fabric. Pin or clip in place.
Using a 1/4” seam, sew around the outside edge of the quilt, leaving a 3” opening on one side.
Turn the quilt right sides out and press. Using a 1/8” seam, sew the opening closed.
Thread your needle with the chunky thread. I used about two feet of thread at a time.
Starting on the front of your quilt, pull your thread to the back of the quilt. Make sure to leave about 1″ of thread remaining on the front. I am tying my quilt where the four patches meet, but you can do it anywhere, as long as it is evenly spaced out.
Pull the thread back through to the front of the quilt, right next to where you pulled your needle through.
Tie your two ends into a knot.
Clip the ends to the same length, and you are ready to move on to the rest of the quilt.
