Several members of this wonderful site ask me how I made this type of "quilt" . A "crocheted-quilt" I named it.
I hope this is the right place to show it. Thank you very much for your warm welcome aboard.
This was my first attemp to make a quilt 30 years ago when I was in college. The proyect was bigger but it went UFO several month later ..... (too much study and... partys I think ).
Two years ago I rescued it from my mom's attic, I re-learned to crochet and I put together the blocks already done and voila! half of the UFO finished. The other half is raw fabric . and orphan blocks thus this tutorial.
The size is: 43" x 64"
As I am a little english challenged LOL! I think is better I show the process by pictures instead only words!!
My red and green crochet-quilt
1.- the block sandwich: the batting is poly from the eigthies. Very vintage!!!
2.- Turn in the seam allowance and baste the 3 fabrics of each block
3.- Joint with aplique stitch around the border. (the thread is heavy duty for embroidery)
4.- Attach the first round of double crochet through the applique stitchs.
5.-Set the layout, mine is simple diagonal of each fabric.
6.- Bind the blocks
7.- And crochet a pretty edging!!!
This is the back.
Well, I hope you could find this interesting. Love to hear your opinions!
