"Patchwork Quilt"

Remember the patchwork quilts that were popular in the 70's? I have been trying to figure out a way to make one for my 70's dollhouse master bedroom. I'm participating in a fabric swap with an online mini group and I received the swap box last week. Inside I found the perfect piece of fabric for my quilt! No sewing required......Did I mention I don't sew? I don't sew. I cut out some batting and a piece of fabric for the backing, added some lace (also from the swap box) and glued it all together. I used a needle and thread to stitch a little X pattern at the corner of each square to help give it a "hand sewn" pieced together look.

Now I am off to make matching pillows and curtains!

You don't sew? That quilt looks pretty 'sewn together' to me! Sure you don't sew?... Good job with the glue then!

What a wonderful quilt!

I would like to sew one. Perhaps I also should stick. I would enjoy this more.

Thank you Lize & Lotti! I use Aleene's No Sew Fabric Glue, I love it. I can sew a button, and stitch a little with needle and thread,(not very straight) but that's about it. My mother-in-law was a seamstress for a Las Vegas showgirl and for the designer Loralie Harris of Loralie Originals. She does all the sewing for my family...I'm really lucky to have her. :)

Lize, you need to contact me with your email address so I can send you your gift certificate. You can find my email address on my profile.

Hello Gaye, I'm new to blogging too and have just found yours. I enjoyed reading it and have become a "follower". I'm looking forward to future posts.

BTW - for a non sewer, your little quilt is lovely.
