Ideas for Making Floral Comforter Sets
Floral comforter sets – Save time creating a beautiful floral comforter using strip patchwork techniques. Streaks of fabric are sewn together to make a traditional nine patch quilt block or to make new designs for your quilting projects. Complicated-looking quilt designs are simplified using strip patchwork fabrics. If you can cut and sew a straight line, you can use strip patchwork to make a quilt, even if you have no experience as a quilt. Cut strips of fabric to the desired size. Strips can be any size, but make sure the edges are straight for sewing. If the edges are not equal, the finished block cannot look like a square at all. Allow your seams as you make the quilt. Each strip will be sewn on two sides initially, so add at least 1/2 inch if you want to use a 1/4 inch seam in the quilt.
Site plan strips and arrange them in order, producing an appealing appearance. You may want to experiment with different layouts until you find what you feel is best for the floral comforter sets you have in mind. Sew the paths in the order you put them in. Start with the first two strips and sew along the edge, maintain seam. Sew the third stripe along the raw edge of the other strip and continue in this way until all stripes are sewn together. Cut strips at the desired length plus seam. For example, if you need strips to be 14 inches long for quilt block, cut them 14 1/2 inches to allow a 1/4 inch nail. You have already allowed the seam along the width of the strip, so there is no need to add in an additional compensation there.
The rods can be cut into small squares for the floral comforter sets, triangles for a twisted strip type quilt or left as long strips depending on the finished quilt design you have decided on. Iron seams open to copy them. If you have used contrast between dark and light fabrics, iron stitches against the darker fabric so that they remain as hidden as possible. Sew the carved pieces together to produce the finished square. Joining the pieces requires only straight seams, no matter how complicated finished quilt block designs look. When you have the pieces sewn together measure all four sides of the square to make sure they are all the same. If necessary, trim the square so that all sides have the same length.
