And it's nice to be able to flip them over and have something a little more traditional.
So as long as I was making the wedding gifts, I made a few larger ones for us.
If you've read my blog for a while (as in a couple years), you might remember that I like to find red accents. I'd used some of this tulip fabric for a covered storage can and just love it.
I knew I wanted larger ones to fit under a casserole dish, but after talking to a few friends, it was decided most people would prefer square ones.
What do you think? Which one would you most want? There are a couple you could take home listed here in my shop.
They're really easy, so I thought I'd give you a quick run-down for how they are made.
- You'll need 9 (or more) 4" squares with different food fabric. (I've listed a couple extra sets in my Etsy Shop here if you don't want to run out and get that many different fabrics.)
- 1/3 yard of backing fabric, fat quarter, or 12x12" scrap
- COTTON batting...I used two layers. You don't want to use anything with polyester or anything else that will melt with the heat.
- All the other typical sewing stuff...
I start by sewing my squares together to make a nine patch.
Then trim two pieces of batting and one piece of my accent fabric to make a quilt sandwich. You'll want the two layers of batting first, then your accent fabric RIGHT SIDE UP and your nine patch RIGHT SIDE DOWN.
Sew around the edge with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Leave the width of about one square open for turning.
Slip stitch your opening closed.
yellow and turquoise ones listed in my shop (at least until the next time I need a wedding gift).
Please show my sponsors some love...
