How To’s Day: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Farm Stand Quilt

September 8th, 2015 by Camelot Fabrics

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a relaxing, long weekend. Did anyone work on any fun new (or WIP) projects?

 

It’s time for our How To’s Day! Today we are sharing one of our free quilt patterns, our Farm Stand Quilt by Anne Sullivan of Play Crafts. Farm Stand is a very cool and clean quilt pattern, featuring “columns” of fabric separated by a solid. We chose to have our Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection made up in this quilt, and absolutely adore the linear, ombred effect created with the many, different designs. Melissa Dunworth of Sew Bitter Sweet Designs quilted the quilt for us, and are obsessed with her quilt work! Thanks, Melissa… SOO much!

3. Sew the (9) units together top-to-bottom to make a 7-1/2” x 72-1/2” column – this completes Stripe #1.

FINISHING THE QUILT:

2. Join the Binding strips end-to-end and press into double-fold binding.
3. Layer the Backing, batting and quilt front, with the fabrics’ Right Sides
facing outward. Baste and quilt as desired, and bind the edges with the Binding strip.

    If I wanted to make this into a traditional twin size quilt, what adjustments to the pattern would you recommend making?

    Thanks,
