When I say local quilt shop you realize I mean 40 miles away but still. The colors are amazing and the softness is so comforting and cozy. These are not baby quilt material in my opinion but I had just the project in mind, a grown up project for a change. My quilt group was having sew day and we all decided to make infinity scarves as a fun and easy way to use up some of our fabric (stop laughing, I really did mean to use up some fabric) and get started on those Christmas gifts for next year.
|My first attempt came out so pretty! I couldn't stop at just one.|
You can find all kinds of You Tube videos to help you figure out how to make these. Here's one that describes pretty well how I did it. She uses yardage but you can use fat quarters sewn end to end to get the length you like. I used a two half yard cuts width of fabric to make up my length. It ended up about 84" before joining. That seems long I know so I used a safety pin and pinned it together and wrapped it around my neck to test it before I joined it up and found that I liked the length/drape just fine.
Have a fun, just for you sew day and make it pretty.
Until next time,
