It’s the third step of the Quilt to Give, community quilting project. Using fabric from your stash to stitch an attractive bed-sized quilt and then giving it to those in need is a wonderful way to show love and concern for others. The best gift is always in the giving!
The first step was to sort out your fabrics with the second step featuring cutting instructions. These steps take manageable bites of time—no more than 2-hours as a solo project, or less time if you’re sewing with friends.
Step Three—Stitch the Outside Columns
Each column is comprised of three parts: two outside columns and a patchy center column.
- Join two crosswise strips, stitching short ends together. To save time, chain stitch pairs of fabric strips. Each column unit requires two outside strips.
- The length of each strip will be approximately 82″.
• Press the seams open or in one direction. Hang the strips over a hanger to keep neat and tidy until tomorrow’s step!
