Sewing a quick quilt could be done in an day or an afternoon depending on the type that is being made.
Basically a quilt is a term used for a padded blanket or cover. Great for both babies and adults alike. For a baby to lie on when on the floor, when out and about or visiting and a cover in a pram or pushchair.
Quilts are equally great for adults, to put on a lap when watching television for that extra bit of warmth or more important a cover up at an outside event. They can be used as a decorative bed covering at home, for use when camping for an extra warmth when the temperature drops.
If someone is confined to a wheelchair then a quilt, which will have no straggly bits, can be used to reflect the personality of that person instead of a plain blanket. Important for all no matter their ages.
To make the padded cover sew a top fabric, a bottom fabric and a padded lining all together. If the fabric used is in one piece say one metre then these are achievable in a day. Many of the quilts covered in this website are sewn as a quick variety such as the quilt part of making Quillows.
If the fabric is made up of a number of bits of smaller pieces of fabric such as making a patchwork quilt where many of the same or different patchwork blocks are made first before the actual covering is sewn together then the time will be extended considerably.
Decide on the size of the quilt, the larger the size the bulkier the sew. It can be done but may take a little longer.
The fabric could be a printed one for the top, like the ones shown above.
Then all that would be needed is to follow some of the pattern with top stitching at the end.
Patchwork - This can be the top, bottom or both layers of fabric. The pattern will need to be made first, to the size required, before sewing the layers together.
This could be using some patchwork blocks or just sewing different coloured or patterned fabrics together in strips or squares.
Applique - The pattern on the fabric needs to be made first and when the layers are sewn together, topstitching can be done over the pattern to hold all the layers firmly.
Enjoy making your quick quilt.
