Every fairy tale needs a magical setting. Now you can make your own setting with the Fairy Tale Woods Quilt. You start with a background fabric of trees or animals. Then add 13 fairy houses on the front of the quilt, each sewn with a roof, windows and door. Then give your quilt to that special little one and watch her imagination soar.
Fairy Tale Woods Quilt is a whole cloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. The outer binding of the quilt is the back pink fabric brought to the front and hand stitched all around.
Skill level: beginner
Completed size of quilt: approximately 36 x 41 inches (91 x 104 cm)
1 yard (.91m) fabric for front of quilt (The fabric on the front is called Wander Woods in the Wee Wander fabric line by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller fabrics)
1 ¼ yard (1.14 m) light pink cotton or brushed cotton (flannel) fabric for the back
1 piece 42 x 36 inches (106 x89 cm) batting that allows for up to 10 inches of open space (I used Warm and Natural cotton batting) for the inside layer
10 or more small pieces of flannel fabric or cotton fabric in different colors for the fairy houses. (Each of the 13 fairy houses needs a 6 x 3 inch (15 x 8 cm) piece for the background and smaller pieces for the details.)
This pattern includes 7 pages of complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions, photos and full size printable patterns. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me at jhaneymdquilter [!at] gmail.com.
HOW DOES A PDF PATTERN WORK?
A PDF pattern (also called e-book or tutorial) is simply a pattern that you can view and print from your home computer. No special printer required - prints on regular copy paper. Please note that full size pattern pieces are made by taping regular copy paper together at specified points. PDF patterns are great because you can save them to your computer and reuse them anytime. No more lost or worn out pattern pieces.
PDF's can be opened and viewed from Adobe Reader which you may already have on your computer. If not, go to adobe.com for a free download.
-CAN I SELL ITEMS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?
Yes! You are welcome to sell finished items handmade by you locally and online (such as Etsy). Please mention where the pattern came from ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/marylandquilter?ref=si_shop) in your listing. The pattern itself is copyrighted and can only be used by the purchaser and copied for their use. In other words, do not sell or share the pattern.
-WHAT IS FREE-MOTION QUILTING?
Free motion quilting is so much fun and easy with a little practice. You replace the straight stitch foot on any standard sewing machine with a darning or quilting foot.( It has a round circle opening or is sometimes an open half-circle) Then lower the feed dogs (The tread under the foot). Lowering the feed dogs allows you to move the fabric in all directions as you sew. By having the freedom to move the fabric you can make tight turns as you sew-- even sew your name in cursive! In many of my patterns free-motion quilting and attaching the appliques happens at the same time, saving time and giving a beautiful pattern on the back of the quilt.
