Fantasy Forest Quilt Tutorial

by Sarah

You can sew a Fantasy Forest Quilt with
our free step-by-step tutorial!

By using one Fantasy Forest Fabric Panel, you can sew a vibrant wall hanging or colorful art quilt in just one hour.  To make the exact quilt featured in this tutorial (approximately 38″ x 58″), you will need:

Use your Moda Bella Black Fabric to create your quilt backing. Use homemade binding from the scraps or a premade pack of black binding.

Supplies/Cutting: In addition to your standard sewing supplies, you will need 1 Fantasy Forest Fabric Panel, 1 yard of Fantasia Abstract Swirl cut into 3 1/2” x WOF strips, 1 yard of Paradise Packed Swirls cut into 3 1/2” x WOF strips, and 2 yds of Moda Bella Solid Black Fabric cut into 4 strips measuring 2 1/2” x WOF. Use your remaining black fabric as your backing. You can make binding from the scraps or use a premade pack of black binding.  You will also need black batting and cotton thread.

*All seams are sewn at 1/4”.

Step 1: Sew 2 1/2” black strips to all sides of your Fantasy Forest Fabric Panel.

Step 2: Sew 3 1/2” Fantasia Abstract Swirl strips to all sides.

Step 3:  Sew 3 1/2” Paradise Packed Swirls border strips to all sides.

Step 4: Create your quilt sandwich by layering your panel top, batting, and backing. Quilt by hand or by machine.

Step 5: Trim any remaining excess fabric. Add binding (homemade or premade) along all of the raw edges using a 1/4” seam.
