Gingham Quilt Pattern

Here's some pictures of the Gingham Quilt I recently finished.  The tutorial is below, and you can purchase the pattern here - which has fabric requirements for Baby, Crib, Twin and Queen quilts.


To make a gingham quilt, you'll need three different colors of fabric.  One white, black, and grey.  Of course you can use other colors, just one light, dark and inbetween. Cut your fabric into 4 inch strips.

Sew one white and grey, and then one black and grey.  (Right sides together of course, and with a 1/4 inch seam).

Press the seam allowance of both strips towards the grey (or medium toned) fabric.

Cut your strips into 4" units as pictured below.  Sew with right sides together, and nest the seams.

Pull one side of your seam allowance up, and the other down to spread out the bulk of the seam.  Press.

Now you've got your units to make your gingham quilt.  For more detailed instructions and fabric requirements, you can check out my pattern here.  It gives the instructions for Baby, Crib, Twin and Queen sizes!

  1. I was just thinking about this the other day, maybe a gingham quilt would be the perfect quilt to sell? Solids are generally cheaper than prints, you could customise the colours of the gingham easily and gingham is such a recognisable pattern, I'm sure people would like it (haha there's me waffling on without having actually done any market research). I was writing notes about doing the gingham with big strip sections because of all the strip piecing, but squares would be great too! You're very clever!
