|Project Name: Gum Wrapper Chain Sweatshirt|
Yes I love BLUE fabric!
I started by rotary cutting the fabric into 1 1/4 inch strips.
I stitched my 1 1/4 inch strips together and then cut them at 1 1/4 inch across. See the photo.
I stitched way too many of them!
I stitched the next strip --- 2 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide.
I stitched way too many of them - again!
I stitched the little blocks together. See the photos.
Next I stitched a solid square ( 2 inch square) on the sides like the photo.
I added more 2 inch squares to the sides and made a little quilt first and then another one. See the next couple photos.
I staggered them 2 off in the first one and 1 off in the second quilt. Still get the same look that I wanted. I want it to look like a gum wrapper chain!
It's ready to quilt!
I added double batting under the Gum Wrapper Strips. (80/20 Batting)
I stitched Marcia 2015 PQS6Ch5 to each little quilt.
They are not done yet!
I stitched the larger one onto the back of a sweatshirt and the little one to the front.
A couple years ago I made a Gum Wrapper Chain Quilt. Click here for that post.
If you want to know how I made the ruffled sweatshirt you can download the PDF Pattern on Craftsy.com in my Pattern Store.
