Instructions


10" Quilt Block Bib


This beautiful apron uses one 8" quilt block. The block has a 1" border all the way around it, so the entire measurement is 10" x 10" when completely finished. What a fun way to use a quilt block! Don't miss our Free Quilt Lessons. It covers basic quilt techniques as well as creating points (sewing triangles).

Supplies Required (choose your own colors: I will refer to colors in picture)

Note: one fat quarter measures 18" x 22"

solid gold fabric: enough for two 1.5" X 1.5" squares and two 2.5" x 3.5" rectangles

gold star fabric: enough for two 1.5" X 1.5" squares, one 1.5" x 7" strip and two 2.5" x 3.5" rectangles

navy starfabric: one fat quarter piece (or 1/4 yard)

muslin: 1 1/3 yard (for 26" skirt): purchase more yardage for longer skirt

1/2 kitchen towel (I used yellow)
Thread (to match background)


Note: all seams are 1/4 inch. Always iron between steps.

Sewing Supplies: scissors, quilting pins, large sewing ruler, fabric marking pencils, seam ripper
hint: quilting pins are easier to use than regular pins; a tupperware box works well as a supply box.

Safety Reminders For Little Helpers

A. Always have an adult do all the ironing!
B. Never run with scissors. Carry them pointed end down.
C. Never use a sewing machine without adult supervision.
D. Always let an adult use the seam ripper for you.

Now you are ready to start!

Please Note: These diagrams are not exactly to scale, but pattern pieces do fit as shown.

First, cut out your pattern pieces for the muslin. I use butcher paper, bought on a roll at Costco.
