Baby clothes quilt Answered
I am about to endeavor to start making a quilt out of my children's baby clothes which are made of various fabrics, some of which are t-shirt fabric. I have never made a quilt before and really have no clue. I'm not thinking it will be perfect. I'm thinking of making 5 x 5 inch pieces. First question: do you think 5x5 or 6x6 pieces are a good size? Second question: for the t-shirt material, do I cut the square first and THEN fuse it to make it more stable? Or do I fuse first then cut into a square? I know I need to put 1/2 inch on all sides for seams? But still my main question is: cut then fuse, or fuse then cut? And really, it only needs to be nice enough so that I can gaze at it when I am older and it is covering my old painful knees and reminisce about my children when they were young. Thank you.
