Making a cotton quilt is very easy. Buy a quilting magazine and find a pattern that’s marked ‘Easy’ or ‘Beginner’. The tools required are fabric, thread, scissors, a cutting mat and a rotary cutter and quilting ruler. Also you need to purchase batting, which is the middle layer of the quilt, and enough additional fabric to cover the back of the quilt.
The first activity is to Cut out the pieces that go into the quilt top and sew them together. Then lay backing fabric on a table or other surface big enough to accommodate the quilt. Put the three layers together using safety pins all around the edges, about three inches in from the edge. Then sew the three layers together with a sewing machine. Then turn the quilt right side out, hand stitch the opening closed, using a small stitch. Then tie the three layers together across the whole quilt, top to bottom. Remember to knot the needle not thread it. Take one stitch in the quilt, going in from the top, then up from the bottom. Leave a tail of thread coming out of the first hole long enough to tie a knot. Cut the threads as you go, leaving enough on both sides to tie a double knot by hand. You can tie the knots as you stitch, or wait and tie them all at once.
Cotton quilts last long and also look very beautiful. Creative quilters can make good money making them for regular customers.
