Delphinium Days

A Nimble Thimble Design



Included in this kit:


You will need :

  • a piece of batting at least 65” x 50”

  • Spray Baste (505 spray glue or similar)

  • Thread

  • A walking foot for your machine will make quilting it much easier!


Making the quilt:


  • Cut one of the Pink Spotty strips in half and join it to the end of another strip to make a longer length. Repeat for the other strip.

  • Repeat the process for the Blue Spotty strips.

  • Repeat the process for the Green Spotty strips so that you have 3 strips at least 65” long and two strips at least 50” long.

  • Press the backing fabric and lay it right side down on a table. TIP - masking tape helps ensure that it doesn’t move when you layer the batting

  • Spray it lightly and evenly with spray baste

  • Smooth the batting over the backing, ensuring that there are no wrinkles.

  • Mark the centre of the quilt with a vertical line.

  • Using the spray baste, stick a Green Spotty strip down the centre of the quilt.

  • Place a 6” strip of Delphinium fabric right sides together on top of the Green, and sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip the Delphinium fabric over to the right side and smooth it down on to the batting.

  • Take a strip of Pink Spotty fabric and place it right sides together on top of the Delphinium. Sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip and smooth as before.

  • Place a 5” strip of Delphinium fabric right sides together on top of the Pink, and sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip and smooth as before.

  • Take a strip of Blue Spotty fabric and place it right sides together on top of the Delphinium. Sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip and smooth as before.

  • Place a 5” strip of Delphinium fabric right sides together on top of the Blue, and sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip and smooth as before.

  • Take a strip of Green Spotty fabric and place it right sides together on top of the Delphinium. Sew through all three layers down the right side seam.

  • Flip and smooth as before.

  • Repeat this process, alternating the Delphinium and the Spots, for the other side of the quilt.

  • Lay a strip of Green Spotty right sides facing across the top of the quilt . Sew through all three layers and flip the strip out towards the edge of the quilt.

  • Repeat for the bottom of the quilt.

  • Trim the edges neatly and bind as follows:


Binding the quilt


  • Take the 3” Delphinium strips and join these strips end to end, then iron the strip in half along it’s length

  • Starting about 1/3 of the distance between two corners, align the raw edge of one end of the binding with the raw edge of the quilt top, right sides together (illustration does not show excess batting and backing)

  • Leave an approximate 3" unpinned tail of quilt binding at the beginning, then pin several inches of binding to the quilt.

  • Do a quick alignment around the rest of the quilt, without pinning, to make sure no seam allowances within the quilt binding will end up at a corner of the quilt to create bulk. If you find a seam allowance at a corner, change the starting point and recheck.

  • Sew the quilt binding to the side of the quilt, leaving the beginning tail free. Use a ¼” seam allowance.

  • Stop sewing ¼” before you reach the corner of the quilt. Sew a few backstitches, cut threads and remove the quilt from the machine.

  • Fold the unsewn tail of quilt binding straight up, positioning it so that its right edge is parallel with the next side of the quilt to be bound. Coax the strip to form a 45-degree angle on its lower edge. See the illustration top left.

  • Fold the binding down, the top of the fold flush with the edge of the quilt top behind it and raw edges aligned with the side of the quilt. The 45-degree angle should be intact under the fold.



Have fun!
