The master class offered by us in this article will help to sew a beautiful and necessary product with your own hands, even a master craftsman who has no experience in quilt technique. What do we mean by patchwork? This technique is familiar from ancient times, as many have seen the patchwork quilts sewn by our grandmothers more than once. Since earlier thanks to this style were performed not only bedding, but also clothing, patchwork became very in demand in times of crises. To date, by applying Japanese patchwork in needlework, it is possible to produce not only decor items, but also interior items and accessories. A special stitch in this style is sewing straight stitches with a needle. The quality of the product as a whole depends on how much the same stitches are made. In order to sew a quilted mini blanket using the Japanese patchwork technology, you do not need to finish a special university. It is enough to follow the step by step instructions of the master class. So, you need to start in this case with the selection of the color range of the flaps. This proposal is only supposedly and the colors presented are optional. Everyone can choose their own combinations, close in the mood and purpose of the future blanket. This master class is designed to create six mini blankets, each about 45 centimeters in width and 50 centimeters in length. To do this, you will need:
- one and a half square meters of various pieces of fabric, solid in structure;
- a two-meter section of material that will serve as the back of the product;
- two square meters of batting;
- tape for the edging, having a width of about 6 centimeters and a length of 13 meters;
- strong thread for sewing;
- tailoring pins;
- needles for sewing hands.
At the initial stage, you should cut the fabric,which is designed to make the top of the future blanket on strips, the width of which will be 4 centimeters. Next will follow the band wider. Those bands that have the brightest coloring need to be cut into two parts. They will be separative. Then comes a narrower strip. At the assembly process, it is necessary to adhereuse the same algorithm, which will be considered in the photo below. Each can mix the strips to your liking. The condition of a successful result is the contact of the light and dark stripes. The machine seam from the edge must pass at a distance of six millimeters. From a wide strip, you should cut off a piece, which when measured will have a length of 7 centimeters. Then cut the same shred of fabric of a darker color. These blanks are stitched together, as shown in the photo below. To the resulting detail, another strip of a darker color is sewn, identical to the previous one. We spread out the obtained length in a length and perpendicularly from both sides we sew on a strip of light shade. In the same way, in the given sequence we build a drawing of the necessary width and length. The color scheme alternates in color. In principle, in a given algorithm of work, you can also insert thin strips of fabric that have a different pattern. After finishing the front or front of the mini blanket, you should proceed with the quilting process. At this stage, you need batting and fabric, designed to be the basis for the product. The upper part is leveled,perimeter with scissors (if necessary). After that, the substrate should be put on a hard surface, then - a layer of batting, it is covered with all this the main part of the product. This part should be slightly smaller than the layers of batting and tissue base. Screwing the needles with tailor's needles, we beginthe process itself, which is a feature of the Japanese patchwork - quilting. You can work both manually and on the machine. It is important to put stitches along the groove between strips of different colors. After the end of the process from the back of the blanket, you get this picture: Using the factory edging band, the edges of the product should be machined. Sew the tape together with the batting, the base and the face of the blanket. Securing the edging from the underside of the secret seam, you can safely admire your creation with the mandatory collection of a friendly company for a picnic!
