Using Left Over Fabric
A great way to use left over fabric is in the backing simply join them together into a long strip and join to backing fabric either sewing down the centre or perhaps around the sides.
Always measure your quilt top through the centre before adding borders and make the top fit this measurement not the borders to fit the top.
Keeping track of all those small pieces of fabric
When cutting lots of small pieces it is a good idea to keep them in zip lock bags so they are easily seen and carried.
How big do I need to make my bed quilt?
When making a bed quilt you need to think about how far over the edges of the bed you need you quilt to go. This will of course mean extra centimetres / inches to be accounted for.
