    Lightbulb My Crocheted-Quilt. Tutorial/Pics.

    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 is 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 challeged LOL! I think is better I show the process by pictures instead only words!!

    It's also called a fusion quilt. http://www.sewingdaisies.com.au/sewi...n-blanket.html
    I like yours much better than the one in the link.

    Hello Mandy, I don't poke holes I use the gap of the aplique stitches around each block to hook the crochet.

    I love this ! I remember my Mother used to make baby blankets similar to these. She would use flannel and go around just the one piece, like binding them together. Many years ago. Thanks for sharing !

    My only concern would be the raw edges of the blocks. Wouldn't it be better to birth them each individually, then crochet together? Or doesn't it matter? How does it wash up?

    Thanks for sharing. I have never seen those before. I think that will be my next portable project since it combines two of my favorite things. I think you could also use the technique for some interesting totes and jackets.

    There is a 45mm blade called "skip stitch" that your can purchase & put in rotary cutter. I have been taking pieces of fleece, using the blades to poke holes all around the fleece, and crocheting different edges on it and donating to charity. It seems the new mothers like to toss these over baby in car seats; put on floor for baby, etc. I have been making the majority of them about 30x36 (1 yd fleece, cut in half), altho have made them all sizes. Found the blade thru Project Linus link and ordered them online. www.skipstitch.com/ There is another blade in the stores, but it would be good for only thin fabrics. There are 3 blades online for different thicknesses of fabric. These are fun and cute.

    The quilt is so sweet. I've never seen one like it before. Thanks for sharing your "how to".
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I think those are so very nice. You have given me some ideas for different ways to put a quilt together. Looks really pretty and easy to do.

    I see some new ways to add crochet, which I love to do, to those charm squares I love to purchase!

    Thanks
