Whole Cloth Knit Jersey Quilt – Tutorial

When I first started sewing, I was obsessed with sewing knit. And I’m pretty confident that many of the first dresses and shirts that I made for my friends and family might not still be intact. And after a few years of persistence and humility, I can confidently say that I have conquered knit… enough so that I am going to share with you how to make your own whole cloth knit quilt. And I promise that it won’t fall apart.

  1. It was such a delight to meet you at Quiltcon! I love your enthusiasm and improv work. Thanks for bringing such energy to the crazy world of quilting!

  2. Question about binding this – couldn’t you just “pillowcase” it and do a topstitch around the edges, instead of actually binding it? I love this, and I love the look of the binding, but I got a couple of nice pieces of knit in our quilt guild’s donations, and wondered about making a whole cloth quilt — the pieces are coordinated — one side solid and the other is a modern print. I’m headed to the blog to watch the whole process!

    1. You totally could. But it would limit what you could do with quilting. Have fun making one! It’s our most used quilt to date
