Sew Along with Nancy Zieman, Quilt to Give

Sew Nancy’s Bed-Size Quilts To Give

You’re invited to quilt along with us as we make Nancy Zieman’s Quilt To Give. We’ve written 10 easy steps, within 10 blog postings. With our step-by-step directions, you’ll be able to make a great looking quilt from your fabric stash in 10 Easy Steps.

In 2011, Nancy designed our Quilt to Give project to use your fabric stash and create an attractive bed-sized quilt, and then give it away to an individual or family in need. Making and giving a needed bed quilt is a heartfelt way of showing support and encouragement.

Bed quilts—twin, double, and queen—are ideal quilt sizes to make and donate. We’re making twin-size quilts to show our love to those we will likely never meet, yet whose images fill our minds.

Nancy Zieman’s Quilt To Give design can easily be made from a fabric stash with perhaps a few purchased fabric additions. Nancy’s quilt design is simple and attractive, and easy to make as you follow along with our 10 Easy Steps.

 

Ten Easy Steps

Step 1—Sort out fabrics from several stashes

Step 2—Cut column strips and center patchy strips 

Step 3—Stitch column lengths

Step 4—Stitch the patchy center columns

Step 5—Create the columns

Step 6—Piece the quilt top

Step 7—Audition borders

Step 8—Add borders

Step 9—Layer and quilt your creation

Step 10—Binding and labeling

 

 

Helpful Printable PDFs

So, gather fabrics, encourage friends to join in and make a quilt from home, enjoy the process, thank God for the many blessing you have, and then give away the quilt.

The gift is in the giving!

 

Happy Quilting!
