You’ll Need

  • 7 x 7 Backing fabric
  • 5 x 5 Front Fabric
  • 5×2 for loop
  • Bosal (2) 5 x 5

This weeks video has no sound – apologies. However, here’s a quick step-by-step rundown of the video.

  1. Work through the list to cut your fabrics to size.
  2. Take your hanging loop piece (5×2) and fold it in half. Press.
  3. Open up and fold each side in to the centre fold line. Press both.
  4. Fold one side over onto the other. Press one last time.
  5. Sew down either side, close to the edge.
  6. Set aside for later.
  7. Lay a piece of bosal shiny side down on the table.
  8. Add a second piece, this time shiny side up (so it faces you).
  9. dinally, add your front fabric (5×5) on top of those with the right side facing you.
  10. Pin those layers together.
  11. Quilt as desired. I just used the presser foot to quilt straight lines across the entire thing.
  12. Trim the edges so they’re neat and the bosal isn’t visible too far in (it needs to be coverable by the self-binding)
  13. Place your backing fabric right side facing down in front of you.
  14. Add the pad you created previously to the middle of this and pin together (or pin in place).
  15. Fold each edge in by half an inch, this is up to the edge of the centre pad. Press.
  16. Now fold over one edge so it’s on top of the pad. Use clips to secure temporarily as you work.
  17. In that first corner where two edges meet, fold over the very corner to create a point.
  18. Now fold the edge over onto the pad and you’ll see it creates a mitre. We need to do that on the other corners too.
  19. Sew around the entire pad close to the inner edge to secure that self-binding.
  20. I forgot – but figure out which is the top corner (if your fabric is directional) and pop your hanging loop in there between the pad and binding before you start to sew.
  21. Give the pad a quick run over with yor iron and that’s it.
