For National Quilting Month, I wanted to create a cool-quilty-keepsake that is both simple and totally fun. I know that a Barn Quilt is generally made out of wood and paint; and since this isn’t something I generally have around and I’m absolutely obsessed with fabric and sewing, I opted for this option as an approachable project that we can all get started on right away.
What You’ll Need:
- Fabric for quilt block
- Heavy duty fusible webbing
- Foam stabilizer
- Frame with mat
- Brother ScanNCut SDX125
- Quilt block design PADOO6 (included with ScanNCut)
- Brother SE1900
- Standard tack adhesive mat
Cutting Out the PiecesFor the standard tack adhesive mat, you will need to fuse the webbing onto each piece of fabric and remove the paper before applying to the mat.
- Before cutting, measure the actual opening in the mat. In my instance, I had an actual 10” x 10” opening, but most matting is slightly smaller than the image size as to ensure full coverage. Use the opening dimensions as the dimensions of the quilt block.
- Determine which fabrics will be used with each section of the block. Mark all pieces in the same fabric on the machine.
- With mat inserted correctly and fused fabric adhered to the mat, press the button to cut the pieces out.
- Using the included tool, remove all pieces and continue this process with the other fabrics until all pieces are cut out.
