Patchwork Bunting Tutorial
This was originally published as a guest tutorial on the Art Gallery Fabrics Blog.
Sugar by Pat Bravo for this project. The colors and prints just scream summer to me!
- 7 print fat quarters
- 1/4 yard of solid fabric
- Coordinating thread
Finished Size: Approx 80" long from tip to tip
Seam Allowance: 1/4" unless otherwise noted
From each print fat quarter:
- Cut (1) 4.5"x18" strip
- Subcut strip into (2) 4.5”x6.5” rectangles
- Cut (2) 2.5"x18" strips
- Subcut each strip into (6) 2.5"x2.5" squares
From solid fabric:
- Cut (2) 2”xWOF strips
- Trim both strips to 42" long
Repeat steps 1-5 with remaining squares and rectangles until you have 14 bunting flags.
Fold down 1/4” (or so, doesn’t need to be exact!) on each short edge. Press. Topstitch.
Continue stitching across the strip, securing all the flats, until you’ve reached the other end and the strip is closed.
