Each seamstress always has scraps of beautiful fabric. Some of them are of excellent quality and nice colors, but they are too small to be sewn. The solution can be to make an item using a patchwork technique, for example, a patchwork quilt.
For this blanket, designed by needlewoman Valerie Nesbitt from the UK, long and narrow shreds are suitable. In her video, Valerie shows you how to make this beautiful piece in just 40 minutes.
Valerie uses strips about 6 cm wide and about a meter long. She joins the ends of the strips perpendicular to each other and sews them together diagonally, cutting off excess edges. This method makes the pattern more interesting and voluminous. As a result of such operations, a long strip of patches is obtained (about 30 strips in length). Valerie folds this long strip in half and sews along the edges, making a piece half the width of the original two strips. At the end, the edge is cut. This process is repeated until the web width reaches 32 strips. The whole process takes about 40 minutes.
The result of the work is a rectangular canvas, from which you can sew a blanket or bedspread. You just need to process the edges or sew on the finish you like.
