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 brother!
