Scrappy Boho Patchwork

This project is perfect for using up all those gorgeous Liberty scraps you’ve collected!

You will need…

+ fabric scraps
+ thread
+ sewing machine
+ scissors

Before you begin…

Gather your scraps and sort them into colours that feel right together. One of the things we love about Liberty is that all their designs work together, we just separate those with cream backgrounds from those with white backgrounds.

Step 1

Start matching pieces of similar length (a) and stitch them together, ironing as you go.
note: Matching pieces of equal length or width will ensure minimal fabric waste.

Step 2

Add new pieces (b), then combine to build blocks of similar size (c). Repeat until you have enough blocks to create the quilt size you have in mind.

note: Don’t worry about misaligned seams – this is exactly what you are trying to achieve in scrappy boho patchwork.

Step 3

Lay your blocks out and arrange to create a pleasing overall design. Stitch blocks together.
tip: take a photo to remind yourself of the overall design before you start stitching – that way it won’t matter if they get mixed up.

To finish

Quilt and bind your project.
