Primary TechniqueWhole Cloth



  • Pattern 1, Pattern 2, and Pattern 3
  • Top fabric
  • Backing fabric- I like to use flannel on the back of bibs
  • Fusible felt or quilt batting
  • Bias tape
  • 1" of Velcro

  1. Cut the pattern out and tape together, matching letters on the dotted lines.
  2. Cut one bib pattern from top fabric, one from backing fabric (reverse the pattern), and one from batting or fusible felt.
  3. Iron fusible felt to backing fabric.
  4. Pin all pieces together.

  5. Free motion quilt holly leaves onto the front. Practice a few times first on scrap material! I found this gets a pretty cool thread painting look if you go over the lines a few times, giving it a "sketchy" look.

  6. Free motion quilt the berries.

  7. Free motion quilt the background - I used a random squiggle pattern. Start in the middle of the bib and work toward the edges, then work down the narrow part, removing pins as you go.
