    Finished - Cute chenilled quilt for DGD

    Cindy just finished this great soft and cuddly chenille-effect quilt for our little granddaughter. We think it'll make a great floor quilt for her to play on. It was a pretty easy, although a little bit tedious project to make. Cindy did all the hard work, and I did the cutting of the fabric layers into the chenille effect, so I had a small part in it too.

    The finished size is about 32" x 40".

    Overall quilt picture - This panel is Bear Necessities starring Popcorn the Bear and Friends from Quilting Treasures.

    That is precious! I love the effect of chenille but it does take a bit of time and effort. It is especially nice done with several of the panels stacked.

    Wow - that represents a lot of work!

    Wow - that represents a lot of work. I've made a few chenille scarves so I know. Is there just one panel or multiple layers of the same panel to get that effect?
    Blessings!

    It uses 3 identical stacked panels. The top two are cut and the lowest one is not cut.

    Due to popular demand, I've now put a set of instructions, which we originally got from our rep and then modified slightly, into a pdf file and put it on our website for download, here: http://www.quilt-kits-online.com/pro...ille_quilt.pdf

    I made a pillow in this manner once. Do you put a back on it after you cut it?

    The backing and binding are put on before you cut it. Check out the instructions I posted a couple of posts back. Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

    It's very cute though I don't think I would have the patience to do all the chenille effect.

    I used a slash cutter, which made it very easy. Just slip the cutter into each channel and carefully run it to the other side and out. The whole thing took me about a half-hour to cut. I had to change the cutting surface a half-dozen times because the blade got dull quickly, but using the tool it was quite fast and easy.
