|A No-Sew Quilt Block - Something new to try.|
|Here are the contents of the quilt kit.|
The instructions contain links to their website with demo videos. I did watch the videos a couple of times, and they were very useful.
The instructions are simple. Take off a pattern piece of the design, one at a time, starting at the center. The exposed area of the board is sticky.
|Remove a paper section.|
Use the paper pattern piece to cut a piece of fabric, allowing 1/8" border around the shape.
|Use the paper shape to cut the fabric piece.|
|Finger-press the piece onto the sticky board.|
Use a blunt punching tool to tuck the edges of the fabric into the pre-cut slits. Since I don't have a punch tool, the instructions say you can use the back side of a seam ripper as well. That is what I used and it worked fine.
|I didn't have the punch tool, but the back of a seam-ripper works great too.|
|First piece in!|
|Center-star in place. Perfect points!!|
The instructions for the outer border pieces were a little unclear. The fabric wraps around the edge to the back, and needs to be glued down. This is where I went back to watch the demo video.
|The border material wraps around the edges for a more finished look.|
This was an easy project, and it didn't take too long either. It even came with a little hanger so I can hang up the board right away. Since I used scraps for this block from a quilt that now sits in our family room, this little guy is going to hang in the family room too.
I may look into getting a larger board next time! DD1 wants to try one too. She says she likes that she wouldn't have to worry about sewing perfect seams for this project. lol ☺
