    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    Redwork baby designs are used to quilt the finished project. Though the designs are not totally continuous from beginning to end, there are very few trims involved. Redwork outlines are ideal for quilting! There is no need for embroidery backing in this project. The finished quilt is more than sturdy enough to support the redwork designs.


    Step 1:

    The project uses 8” blocks, so cut the length of the main fabric in 8” widths.


    Step 2:

    Position each of the 8” strips on the cutting mat and cut at 8” again. You will now have 8” blocks.


    Step 3:

    Place the trim fabric on the cutting mat and cut into 3” strips.


    Step 4:

    With right sides together, stitch the strips to the squares. Place five squares across for each row. When the rows are completed (six rows), stitch the strips between each row as well. Last, use the strips to make a border around the entire quilt. When the top is complete, add the batting and backing and complete the stitching of the quilt, all the way through the binding. Before stitching the binding, secure all corners of the squares, either by tying the corners or, if you prefer no ties, with quilting pins. The redwork embroidery will serve as the quilting in this project.


    Step 5:

    The last step in the process of the quilt construction is the addition of the binding to finish the edge of the quilt.


    Step 6:

    The four quilt corner designs use the text for the A-B-C Song. Place those designs in the appropriate corners. Then, beginning at the second square in the first row, embroider the alphabet, one letter per square. Notice that when you embroider through all the layers of the quilt, that the designs are puffy. This gives the quilt a very cuddly look.


    Step 7:
    The Finished Project!
