    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!!

    My red and green crocheted-quilt

    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 !
