Art Project Tutorial:

Step 1

Look in your fabric scrap bag for
materials that you can cut into
square shapes to be used for the
quilt. You can even find unusable
clothing (with stains and rips or
something) that still have a few
squares that can be salvaged from
them. Try the Free bins at Garage
sales too!

Step 2

Once you have your fabrics, cut them
into equal sized squares. We used 6
squares of fabric that measures 10
inches by 10 inches. We picked three
blues, and three greens, but you can
use any colors you like.

Step 3

Arrange your fabrics in the pattern
you would like them to be. Since we
had six, we just alternated the
colors. Sew the squares together
horizontally first, then vertically.

Step 4

We used a piece of scrap fleece we had
left over from another project. We
laid out the squares on top of the
fleece and cut a piece to match the
size. Then with right sides together
we sewed around the edges leaving
a small opening for turning.

Step 5

After turning the quilt back to the
right sides, we stitched up the hole
After turning the quilt back to the
in the side.

All Done!

Snuggle in with your scrap quilt!
Use it for one of your stuffed
animals, dolls, or even baby
