Quilt Sandwich with SprayNbond Basting Adhesive

She’s been asking me, and she has been kind of patient so I finally dove in got it done. I even let her have her say in the fabric I was going to use to make her  a quilt. But I think what Amelia likes the most about this project is that this quilt was made especially for her.

It’s time to get creative, so gather your supplies and tools!

For One Quilt Block 12.5″ x 12.5″ unfinished
  • At least 3 cotton fabrics with contrasting colors
For 20 Quilt Blocks:

Thanks to the people at Riley Blake I was able to play with  Spring’s In Town by Sandy Gervais for Riley Blake Designs.


  • Oliso Project Iron & ironing board
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Rotary cutter and self-healing mat
  • Ruler


Cut the following for each quilt block:

  • 1 – 6.5″ square of fabric A for the center (this is great for fussy cutting! )
  • 4 – 3.5″ sqaures of fabric B (to be used for the stitch and flip method to frame out the center square)
  • 2 – 4″ squares of each fabric A  and fabric C (double half square triangle method)
  • 4 – 3.5″ x 6.5″ rectangles of fabric C
  • 8 – 3.5″ sqaures of fabric A

1. Take the (4) 3.5″ squares in Fabric B and drawn a diagonal lines.

2. Use the Stitch and Flip method to assemble the 3.5″ squares to the 6.5″ square. This link may be helpful (click!) Your center sqaure should now meausre 6.5″. Sew along the diagonal line and use a rotary cutter to cut off the excess leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press towards the darker fabric. Use a rotary cutter and ruler to square off your center block, this will help if all your squares are perfect when it comes time to assemble your quilt!

3. Now you want to take the 4″ squares in Fabric A and Fabric C and create double half square triangles. This link will be helpful (click!). Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of Fabric A and place Fabric A and Fabric C with right sides together. Sew a 1/4″ way from the line on both sides of the line. Use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut along the line. Press seam allowance towards the lighter fabric. The quare units shoudl measure 3.5″, use a rotary cutter and ruller to trim them to the right size!

4. Create 4 Flying Geese units with the Fabric A – 3.5″ squares and the Fabric C – 3.5″ x 6.5″ rectangles. Use the stitch and flip method as mentioned in step 2. The Flying Geese units should measure 3.5″ x 6.5″, use a rotaty cutter and ruler if needed to make sure the units are the right measurement. 
5. Arrange all the block units on a flat surface. Assemble row by row, matching up the seams. 
6. Once you’ve made the desired amount of blocks lay them down and arrange them so no two like colored blocks are side by side unless that’s the way you want it to be. This is a great project for using up small pieces! You can make this quilt as scrappy as you like or be very intentional  with the fabric used. Be sure to properly press your seams!  
7. Now that the quilt top is fully assembled, create a quilt sandwich. The first layer being the backing, then the batting and finally the quilt top. The backing and  shouldThe layer of StitchNsew be bigger than the quilt top by about 3-4 inches all the way around. Baste the different layers using SprayNbond Basting Adhesive.  
8. Quit it out as desired. For this one I just followed the diagonal seam lines. Once you’re done quilting it’s important to clean your machine and change the needle, the needle might have some residue from the SprayNbond. 
9. For the binding, cut 2.5″ wide strips making sure you have enough to go all the way around your quilt. I often hand sew my binding but not this time, and that’s ok!  
10. This last step is very important, find a place to snuggle with a cup of coffee, I have to test it out before Amelia comes back from school and claims it for herself! 
And there you have it! 
Thanks for joining me! I hope I’ve inspired you to create a cozy place to drink hot cocoa and snuggle under a blanket. If you liked this project, please let me know by posting a comment. And don’t forget to stop by my Instagram and say HI!
