Down Comforter Quilt

 Anyone who knows me would tell you that I am not the most patient person. I usually choose projects that can be completed in one night. So when I thought about making a quilt for my son's room I felt a little nauseous. I wanted to make him something original and by me. Something that he can keep until he is old and know that "my mom made this just for me." But making a quilt is not my favorite sewing project. So I decided to cheat a little. Here is what I came up with:

I used a down comforter that is super fluffy and soft. I measured each square and cut my quilters cotton 1" smaller than the square. (the down comforter had 8" squares so I cut my cotton 7" into squares).
Next I cut some wonder-under into 6" squares. I ironed the wonder-under pieces to each of the cotton square pieces.
Then I ironed each cotton square to the down comforter. I started with one row. Then sewed down the row in a straight line starting at one end of the blanket and going over each square in the row until you reach the other end. Continue until all the sides of all the square are sewed down.

Throw your quilt into the washer and dryer to see all the square edges frayed.
It is fluffy and comfy with a quilt flair.

*If you don't like the frayed edges look you can turn all the edges of your squares under, iron the edges down, and then sew over the top of them so you don't have the frayed look.

The carpet is very nice. One day, everyone went out, leaving my nephew with me. I also had to attend my online class, but I couldn't understand anything because of the situation. I could have left the child on the ground, but then I contacted a website that provides online classes, which benefited me a lot.
