To make this:
I have been working on a quilt made from these bags and I have some words of advice if you are considering using these bags.
- These bags are similar to flannel, so be forewarned. I am not a fan of working with flannel.
- These bags will ravel if not cut on grain. Believe me when I say that they aren't cut on grain at whatever factory makes the bag.
- I would not make half square triangles from these bags. Ever. Again. Worst experience ever. I couldn't get points to match up and they were very stretchy.
- A pattern that features squares and/or strips is ideal to use with these bags.
On this quilt, those dreaded HST were cut as a larger square (5.25") and layered with a same size square. Draw a line diagonally from one corner to another, sew .25" on each side of the line and cut apart.
The finished block size of the shown quilt is 12", and the quilt is 72"x84". I had to open up a lot of bags to be able to get that plain purple.
I now have this top finished and it is layered with a fleece backing, no batting. It will make a very cozy Christmas gift for a certain someone.
So I mentioned that I opened a lot of bags. I had enough of the embroidered portions that I was able to make another quilt. This one measures 54x72 and is made with gold flannel. It is also backed with fleece and had no batting.
Both quilts were quilted on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen.
