- Sew the patchwork layer using the pre-cut fabric pieces
- Assemble your quilt sandwich: patchwork top, wadding middle and fabric back
- Sew the three layers together using wool knots in what is known as ‘tying a quilt’
- Bind the edges of the quilt using your backing fabric
- Wash your quilt to felt the wool ties and give it texture
- Love your quilt!
"I have made the harlequin stocking and a small quilt from Kate's range. I also gave a small quilt kit to my neice. I am an experienced sewist but my nice an absolute novice. She adored making the quilt and ran it up over the Christmas bank holiday last year in just 3 days. She has since gone on to be inspired to make many other patchwork items thanks to the excellent explanations afforded in Kate's accompanying booklet. Cannot recommend highly enough."
