DIY Cuddle Throw Blanket
How to Make a Quilted Blanket
Cut your fabric into 30-inch squares, and line your fabrics up as best as you can.
Insert pins every few inches all the way around.
Put the fabric underneath your presser foot and line it up with the edge.
Tip: DO NOT stitch over your pins. It can really damage your machine. Instead, when you get the pin pull it out and continue to stitch.
When you get to a corner, stop, put your needle down, put your presser foot up, rotate 90 degrees, put your presser foot back down, and continue.
Stitch all the way around with an 8 inch gap for turning, and remember to leave a hole so you can turn you fabric the right way.
Clip your corners a couple of threads away from where you stitched, find the hole you left, put your hand in and pull the blanket out the right way. Rememper to oke out your corners.
Pin around all the edges one more time as you did before.
Sew all the way around again as you did before, but this time sew over the hole you had previously left.
When you reach the end sew back and forth a few times to lock your stitches in place.
Tack your quilt down in a couple of places to keep it from ballooning in the wash. To do this fold your blanket in thirds, and then fold it in thirds the other way.
Place a pin in the four corners to mark it
Unfold your blanket, and stitch an X where the four spots you pinned are by pulling out the pin, going forward 1 inch, back one inch, forward to the middle of the line you just made, put your needle down and rotate 90 degrees. Then, repeat the process.
Repeat this process for the other pin marks.
