SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- ½ yard each of 7-8 different cotton prints
- 1-½ yards fleece
- Sewing machine
- Fabric marking pen
1. Cut the fabric into long strips at least 4" wide. Cut a few different widths for each print.
2. Cut the long strips into thirds. Separate into 4 equal piles, mixing the prints randomly as you go.
3. Sew each group of rectangles together on the long side at ¼", so you end up with four long strips of fabric with stripes of the prints.
4. Press the seams flat. Cut long strips from the sewn strips at least 4" wide, varying the widths as before.
5. Lay out the strips mixing up the four groups. Try to avoid large areas of the same print. Sew together at ¼".
6. Press the seams flat. Lay the cotton patchwork on top of the fleece, smooth out and pin.
7. Fold the extra fleece over the edge of the cotton and sew at 5/8". Trim off the extra fleece close to the stitching.
8. Sew across the length and width of the throw about 20" apart.
