How to Make an Outdoor Quilt

By: Suzy from suzyquilts.com
Updated July 22, 2020

Looking for the perfect quilt to bring along with you all summer? Whether it's for the little ones to play on in the yard, a quick picnic set-up or for local outdoor concerts, learning How to Make an Outdoor Quilt is a practical skill to have (especially during 2020). Follow along with one of our favorite designers, Suzy from SuzyQuilts, and learn how to use canvas to create the perfect outdoor quilt for all of your summer and social distancing needs. 

Important Tip from the Designer:
"... pick one (quilt pattern) that uses large pieces of fabric. Canvas seams can get bulky and if you have too many seams in your quilt top, you'll start experiencing lumps and bumps and frustrations."
