Knit Striped Quilt

I think I have indeed just finished making the perfect shareable snuggle quilt in both size and feel. With a knit front and a cuddle back, it’s quite literally snuggle-able no matter how you drape it.

The journey of this quilt began by me making a Quilted Knit Striped Pillow. As the idea in my head, it wasn’t my general aesthetic, so I didn’t know that I would be as obsessed with it as I was. I even created a YouTube video showing how to do the preparation and piecing of the knit component of the pillow and quilt.

So this is everything that I used for the quilt:

Okay, so I’m gonna be honest here. Knit fabric front + wool batting + cuddle backing is quite literally a pain in the ass to sew. But I know Felicia is tough and I’ve been working on my fitness so I knew I could handle it. And I’m not saying this to discourage you from this combination. However, just know that your quilting will enter into a category of what I’m calling “Organic Hot Mess Awesomeness”. I actually love the quilting and wouldn’t change a single thing about it, but boy does it have a mind of it’s own if you look too closely.

And here are some other supplies that’ll help conquer this beast if you so choose.

  1. That defintiely has to be the ultimate warm snuggle quilt! I love the idea of combining the knits, wool and cuddle. I din’t think I’d be brave enough to do so, struggling to push and pull a few minky backed cotton quils tthrough my machine was workout enough for me.

  2. Goodness, you are perfect in your timing with this as I’ve agreed to make my daughter a knit quilt “like Grandma used to have” (NOT at all like the cotton patchwork most use, but 1970s-era knits that she tied). Since I don’t want to tie this one, I was trying to decide how to machine quilt it with something other than “in the ditch” ~ your example is a perfect solution. THANKS!
