Tutorial: 3 Hour Quilt
This quilt does not use most traditional quilting methods. It is designed for those of you that haven’t tried quilting and are a little intimated by all the steps and techniques needed. This is how I started to explore quilting. I still use it for many quick projects. After doing a few of these it is becoming much easier for me to incorporate standard quilting methods – a little at a time.
You need no special skills! Only regular straight stitching is used. Though I didn’t make my sample all in one sitting, I timed each time I worked on it and came out with a total of 3 hours. (Does not include embroidery time) It may take you a little longer if this is the first time you are doing anything like this. But you should be able to easily finish it in a day or a weekend. The time DOES NOT include the time to embroider the blocks!

I am going over the tutorial for the 3 Hour Quilt. I think you added the batting as one piece? In your opinion, if I am using the thin batting when I am embroidering my squares, can I follow the 3 Hour Quilt for assembling the Quilt except for adding the batting step? I would trim the batting before assembling the squares assemble the squares like you have and continue with doing the back etc.Sep 7, 2019, 03:04 PM
