High Tea Crochet Fusion Quilt Tutorial – Updated!

I’m so excited to finally present the tutorial for my High Tea Crochet Quilt! However, it’s still a work in progress. Right now it guides you through the sewing and crocheting of the squares for the blanket. I will be updating this page with the instructions for joining the squares and adding the border.

The High Tea Crochet Quilt is baby blanket size, approx 44″ x 44″.  I used each of the 36 prints in Jera’s High Tea Collection. I had a full fat quarter bundle at my disposal, but you could make this blanket with as few as 9 fat quarters by cutting 9 6-inch squares from each.

To make the blanket you only need basic sewing skills and some experience with crochet. I have included pictures, videos and illustrations to help those who are more visual learners. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments.

Supplies Needed:

  • 72 6-inch squares of fabric (36 for the front and 36 for the back)
  • 36 6-inch squares of batting
  • 300 grams of fingering weight yarn (I used 6 skeins of Bernat Baby in antique white)
  • Other supplies: sewing machine, thread, large eyed needle, crochet hook
  • Supplies for blocking squares: large piece of cardboard or foam board, spray bottle, pins

Part 1: Fabric Squares

IMG_2550

Place two 6-inch fabric squares right sides together, then place a batting square on top.

Sew around the square 1/2-inch from the edge of the fabric, leaving a 2-inch gap for turning. Back stitch at the beginning and end.

Clip corners and turn right side out. Press.

Top stitch around the square approx 1/4-inch from the edge of the fabric.

Part 2: Blanket Stitch

Blanket stitch around the edge of the square: 16 stitches on each side, and 3 stitches in each corner [76 stitches total].

I made a guide for myself with a piece of card stock. I cut it 4.25-inches long and put a mark every quarter inch. I pinned the card to the fabric square as I sewed.

Part 3: Crocheting around the Squares

I used a size D-3 crochet hook, but gauge is not that important for this project. You just want the completed squares to lay flat after you have blocked them. For reference my crocheted border is about 7/8th-inch wide.

Row 1–Join with a sl st in the 4th blanket stitch from the corner, sc in each blanket stitch on the sides and 2 sc in each corner stitch around [80 stitches total], join with a sl st in beginning sc.

Row 2–Beginning shell [(ch 4, trc, ch 2, 2 trc, ch 2) in joining st, sk 1 sc, sc in next sc.] Corner Shell [ch 2, sk 1 sc, in next sc (2 trc, ch 2, trc), in next st (trc, ch 2, 2 trc), ch 2, sk 1 sc, sc in next sc.] Shell [ch 2, sk 1 sc, in next sc (2 trc, ch 2, 2 trc), ch 2, sk 1 sc, sc in next sc.] Work 4 Shells on each side around. Work Corner Shell in each corner. End with ch 2, sl st into top of beginning ch 4.

Row 3–Sl st to next ch 2 space, sc, ch 5. Corner [sc in first ch 2 space at top of corner shell, ch 6, sc in next ch 2 space]. Side [ch 5, sc in ch 2 space at top of next shell]. Continue around. Join with sl st in beginning sc. Tie off. Weave in all ends.

Part 4: Blocking & Joining the Squares

Coming soon!

Blocking the squares is a process that may help them to lay a bit flatter. Use a spray bottle to wet the yarn around the block. It just needs to be damp, not soaking. Pin the crochet to a piece of cardboard or foam board (or your carpet or mattress–whatever you’ve got) so that it is square. Let it dry completely. (To be honest, I skipped this step with my blanket because I was in a rush to get it done. You could also block the whole blanket after it’s done.)

IMG_2545

right-wrong sides of crochet

Sew the squares together with a whip stitch. I sewed them into pairs and then sewed the pairs into groups of 4 in order to avoid having to sew really long seams.

Part 5: Crocheting the Border

Coming soon!

Row 1–Join with sc at top of first shell from corner. 5 sc in ch sp, sc in next sc. Corner [6 sc in ch 6 sp, sc in next sc.] Sides [(5 sc in ch sp, sc in next sc) x 5. Work 2 sc in ch sp, sc2tog in this sp and next, 2 sc, sc in next sc.] repeat along side. Join with sl st in beg sc.

Row 2–Sl st into next sc. Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1). Sides [Sk next sc, dc in next sc, ch 1] repeat to corner. Corner [dc, ch 1, sk next sc, dc, ch 3, dc, ch 1, sk next sc, dc]. Join with sl st in 3rd loop of beg ch 4.

Row 3–Ch 2 (counts as beg hdc), sc in ch 1 sp. [Hdc, 2trc in ch 1 sp, hdc, sc in ch 1 sp] repeat to corner.  Corner [Hdc. In ch 3 sp work sc, hdc, 2trc, hdc, sc. Hdc in next dc, 2trc in ch 1 sp.] Join with sl st in beg hdc. Tie off. Weave in ends.

  1. I love your tutorial , very easy to follow and the fusion quilt is so beautiful.
    I have made one already following another tutorial and for my next one I would like to follow yours, it is so pretty. Eagerly awaiting your blocking and joining post.

      1. it looks like after she blocked each block (laying each block on a towel and pinning the points into place, then placing a damp cloth over it and pressing it into place.) then she connected them together by chaining 3 and then a sc in each point,

    1. This went on my “Have to Do” list. Beautiful. I want to make one for my cabin, one for my car, and one for my van.. I may do one in denim as well.

    2. Just love your pattern … I have a collection of charms I have been saving and this would be a great project for them… using a 1/4″ seam allowance I get get 15 blanket stitches each side and 3 in each corner for a total of 72 stitches.

      Can the crochet pattern be adjusted?

  2. You are so generous to share this. I have waited and waited to see how you put this together. I simply love it! Thank you for your kindness!

  3. I love this, thank you so much for sharing, cant wait to see you attach all your beautiful squares !

  4. Was so excited to see the tutorial! I have admired this quilt ever since Jera shared it on her website. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! Loved the guide you created to do the blanket stitch. I have wanted to do a quilt like this for a long time and your tutorial is going to help that happen. Thank you again!

  5. This is so lovely, thank you very much for sharing. I have no idea how to crochet but I might just have to learn so that I can make this.

  6. Love this! Beautiful!! You think it would look good with 5 inch squares? I have a moda charm pack I’ve been saving for something special! This is perfect!

  7. What a beautiful blanket. If I were to use fat quarters how many would I need to make enough squares? Xx

    1. You can cut 6-6 inch squares from a fat quarter so you would need 12 fat quarters to get 72-6 inch squares.

  8. I just came over from Singing in the Rain. I love this quilt and the instructions look freaky straightforward. Thank you so much!

  9. Thank you SO much for publishing your tutorial! I’ve been obsessing about it since it first appeared on the Quilting in the Rain blog. . I plan to start on my version this week with different fabrics since the gorgeous High Tea line is not available yet. I look forward to see what joining technique you use.

  10. This is such a beautiful blanket, I love the lacy look of the crochet stitch you chose. It’s a perfect complement to Jera’s High Tea collection. Wonderful tutorial, too!

  11. What a beautiful quilt, and wonderful tutorial!!! Thanks you so much!! It is just so clear and concise. I cannot wait to make it…or at least try. Thank you for your talent and your generosity in sharing your work. Janet

  12. This looks so sweet. I really should learn to crochet.
    Your tutorial is marvelous.
    Thank you for sharing your creativity

  13. This is an awesome fusion of two of my favorites, quilting and crochet. It’s beautiful. Looking forward to the blocking and finishing instructions. AND I can’t wait for this fabric line to become available.

  14. Beautiful quilt. Looks very portable to take in our RV. Can’t wait to get started and thanks so very much.

  15. I’m not sure if you got the posting that I made this morning. Once I pressed the submit button it gave me a message saying the capchta had expired.
    Thank you for sharing your awesome tutorial. I just love how you’ve used both quilting and crocheting for this. I love Jeri’s fabric line and can’t wait for it to be available. I’m going to use your pattern a make a lap quilt for my grandmother. I know she will love it too! Thank you for such a detailed tutorial!

  16. So very pretty and as I mentioned in Jera’s blog, thank you to both of you. This is really gorgeous and I’m hoping to do it. Figuring all of that out and doing a pattern for us, is awesome and I can imagine it was a lot of hard work! You guys are great!

  17. I bought the fabric today, decided to prep the blocks. Ended up sewing the blocks too, now turning right sides out for the first 12. Will do the rest tomorrow and topstitch. Hopefully I can start with the blanket stitch this weekend. Thank you so much for this project, hope mine turns out as pretty as this one. Oh, and I cannot crochet but I am going to learn. Thank you for the very clear tutorials!

    1. If you want, go to uTube there are some really easy to follow videos there to learn.crochet, so you can get to grips with the stitches. Give them a go on scrap yarn. before you try on this one. I never in a million summers thought I’d attempt sewing and crochet to make something like this. My sticky point is the sewing not the crochet, don’t even have a sewing machine.

  18. Wow, what a unique way to showcase quilt and crocheting at one time! This quilt is simply stunning! I love to crochet and I am just now learning how to quilt. I cannot wait to start this project asap! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful quilt and tutorial.

  19. Do you have a print button for this, that way I can take the instructions with me to my sewing room, instead of always coming back upstairs and turning on my computer, it would be much appreciated. you do beautiful work. sharon

    1. I love this quilt both sewn and ceocheted. So unique! I was to make this for my new neice who will be born in October. Do you have any idea how many hours you have into making this quilt? Just wondering if I’ll end up stressed out and not have this gift ready in time. When you get a chance please let me know even if it’s just a basic idea. Thanks a bunch!

    2. Sharon, you can always copy & paste the instructions, That’s what I’ve done…
      I love this & can’t wait for Part 4 to come.

    3. I was so exited that I can’t wait to show your tutorial to my friend So I invited one of them and she ask me to print a copy because she haven’t a computor. She’ll 80 years old, She anticipate to get the suite. She want to know how to ût them together.
      I want to make a shawl for me with this technique

  20. I just Love this design. After promising myself not to start anything this out came the cutter, cottons etc., I have only finished a few squares and cannot wait for the next episode, joining together. What a beautiful quilt I cannot wait to do some more squares I am hooked. Thank you.

    Larain

  21. This is beautiful. I used to crochet but am not mostly just a quilter. But, my daughter loves to crochet so we are going to make one, or two of these together. I’ll do the sewing and she’ll do the crocheting. Thanks for sharing your tutorial. One question though – it looks like cotton batting you are using. Is just sewing it together around the edges and then top edging enough quilting for a 6 inch block. Or, should you quilt more through the block? Just wondering. Thanks again

  22. Your quilt is do beautiful! I love this fabric line, and the crochet edge is so pretty. It has a real vintage feel, and I love that.

  23. Hi Tiffany,
    I’ve always wondered how my Grandma put those beautiful crocheted edgings on her pillowcases, now I know. Thank you so much for your very thorough tutorial and the sweet baby blanket pattern. I love how quick it looks to make while being gorgeous and unique. I don’t want to forget where your pattern is, so I’ve pinned it. BTW, I found your blog through Lecien’s post on Instagram.
    Cindy

  24. Love the quilt cannot wait to see the instructions for joining squares together. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful quilt. Cannot wait to see it in my granddaughter’ s bedroom.

  25. This is such a beautiful piece of work, that it makes me want to have a go. Thanks for sharing your work and methods with us and to have it accessible to me, means I can try something new. Would it be suitable to make.into a tablecloth, If I made the edging with cotton yarn?

  26. Such a wonderful tutorial. You are an awesome. Your instruction were very clear and easy to understand. GOOD JOB! I made a practIce piece on a mug rug. I am really happy I am going to be able to make a quilt like yours. Thank you so much. I am staying tuned for the next lesson. I downloaded to iBooks so I will have it easily avalible

  28. Whaaaaat?!? This is so awesome! Got a crochet hook, crochet yarn, some of Jera’s fabric so I’m all set to go! Thank you for an awesome tutorial!!

  29. Lovely quilt. Perfect as a take-a-long. Going on a 35 night cruise at the end of September and will prep the squares (sewing only) so that I can take them with me and complete the crocheting when I just want to sit and ‘do nothing’. You need that time on a cruise because it can be sooo busy. Looking forward to the blocking and sewing together tutorial. I hope you will be able to do it before the end of September.

  79. This is beautiful! Cannot wait for your future posts to finish the quilt. I only know basic crochet – have never joined squares before. I’m real sure that you have the directions completed before I get the squares to that point. Thanks so much!

  83. I am finally caught up, all of my squares are beautiful and waiting to be joined! I can’t wait to see how to do that! Thank you for this gorgeous pattern, and making it easy to follow along. I eagerly await the next steps!

  84. I love this tutorial… it brings crochet and quilting together to create such a beautiful project. I am making this for a friend who is due in October and wondering when the last parts might be ready.

    Hoping I don’t have to wing it

    Thank you for sharing your talent.

  85. Thank you for sharing such detailed instructions for creating the such a sweet, idyllic quilt. I, too, look forward to the instructions on joining and finishing. Best wishes in all that you undertake!

  86. love the tutorials… cant wait to see how it all comes together…. I have finally found the quilt I want to make for my bed…. thank you so much for sharing and showing us how to make this quilt…. Lyn

  87. I love this and can’t wait to start. Do you have the joining tutorial online yet? Thanks so much for this lovely quilt.

  88. This is beautiful! Any idea how many squares it’d take to make one for a twin size bed? I’d love to make my 9 year old one!

  89. Bring on the edging and joining tutes. Fell in love with this the minute I saw it. My two loves yarn and fabric. So thankful for your generosity and hope it brings generosity into your life.

  90. This is so gorgeous!! The best of two worlds…quilting and crochet! Love your informative easy to follow tutorial! Anxiously awaiting the next instructions!! Thank you for sharing your time and talents!!

  91. Any idea when you will have the crochet instructions for this absolutely gorgeous piece of art?? SO looking forward to making this.

  92. Beautiful! Jera’s High Tea fabric line pairs with the lovely shell crochet stitch marvelously! It really looks antique, like something you might find lovingly preserved in a magical trunk from the Victorian era. It is graceful, elegant and versatile. It would be just as amazing in a little girl’s baby pictures as it would be appropriate as a table topper for serving High Tea with the Queen. And I can just picture that same little girl a few years later, hostessing a (High Tea) tea party where this adorable and well loved blankie graces her table!
    As someone who is passionate about both yarn and fabric crafts, I appreciate how time intensive this could be, although the block construction would be quick and crochet does go pretty fast! Hmmm, I am curious to know approximately how long it took you? I know the results are definitely worth the effort! I may have to just add this to my DO list!
    Thank you for your great tutorial!

  93. This is a beautiful project, something I have wanted to do for a long time but didn’t know how. Thank you very much for the clear directions and videos.

  94. I love your fusion quilt. I have made all my squares and can’t wait to put it together. when will I get you next tutorial? Thank you for the lovely design.

  95. What an awesome tutorial. Your quilt is beautiful. I love to crochet and quilt and am excited to be able to combine the two. I’m working on one of these to give as a Christmas present so I am anxiously awaiting the rest of the tutorials. Thank you so much for the time and effort you are putting into doing these tutorials. You are great.

  96. I’m using cotton crochet thread. For the final row I used 6 chains across the sides and 7 in the corners. Any idea when you’ll have the remainder of instructions available?

  97. Absolutely beautiful! I’ve bought the fabric and crochet yarn and am ready to start very soon. Should I was the pure cotton patchwork quality fabric before cutting out the squares?

  98. I am at the crocheting step in following your excellent videos. I am hoping you are getting reading to complete the videos soon.

  99. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing the tutorial. I have completed the squares and crotcheting and am eager to receive the final instructions.

  100. Hi,Concerning High Tea Crochet Fusion Quilt. I need information on how to join the squares. I am proficient at crochet. Would you please send me the necessary crochet pattern. I need this to be able to proceed as my squares are complete. A timely answer will be much appreciated as this is a winter project and spring is not far off in South Africa. Many thanks, Ilza Theron.

  101. So pretty – I have been working non-stop since I saw it. Just realized there is no pattern posted for joining or the border. Could you possibly post even a rough written pattern so I can finish up w/out making up my own border. (Yours is prettier than whatever I can design on my own!!!)

  102. Love this! When do you think you will be posting the tutorial sections for finishing the quilt? I want to be sure to get the rest of the instructions 🙂

  103. Absolutely gorgeous! I’m thinking of making this for my niece who is due in October. I better get on it! Thanks for sharing.

  104. Hi,
    Thanks for the clear tutorial on this beautiful quilt. I began making the blocks. Completed 8 already. I’m looking forward to learn about blocking them!

  105. I love this quilt! Thank you for your tutorial. My friend in England is working on it there while I do the same in Canada. We are eager to know if the final tutorial regarding joining of the separate pieces will soon be available.

  106. Oh my goodness this absolutely gorgeous!!! I was inspired to make a smaller halloween version! I’m almost finished with blanket stitching the squares; can’t wait to add the crochet borders and join them! Thank you again for sharing your talent!

  107. Hello! I have been happily crocheting away block after block! I am DYING to know how to complete the quilt. It looks like a slip stitch perhaps, but I just want to check with you first.
    My sisters and I are in love with this beautiful pattern! Thanks for sharing.

  108. This quilt is so beautiful! I am using the pattern to make memorial quilts for my sisters-in-law. Do you have a time line for updating the final instructions?

  109. Absolutely love this! Eagerly awaiting your instructions on putting all the squares together. Thank you for sharing.

  110. I love quilts and have made many. This has to be one of the more unique ones that I’ve seen. I love it and am already thinking about who I could make one for. Thank you so much for sharing.

  111. This is gorgeous!
    Just wondering if I missed the next steps and how I’ll be sure to get them. ????
    I NEED to do this ♡♡♡♡
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilt.

  112. This is beautiful and I have made a start on a striped one for my shortly arriving Niece. Look forward joining and finishing instructions.

  113. This is so beautiful and mine is coming along really nicely thanks to your super tutorial. Please can you let mw know when we will be let into the secret of joining the squares?

    Your work is gorgeous

    Thanks

  114. This quilt is so beautiful. I really appreciate your generosity to give the pattern with the quilt. One doesnt get generosity easily. This will be my next project. Greetings from Namibia, Africa

  115. Thank you so much for the recent update that includes the joining and border. I’ve been working on this project for a retiring friend and your update came just in time!

  116. Thank you so very much. It is such a beautiful mix of crocheting and quilting. What wonderful tutorials and easy to follow instructions. This will be a great project to work on in the RV. Not always having internet connections to watch the crocheting tutorials over again, is there someplace to print the crocheting instruction out? Thank you again for the High-Tea tutorials.

  117. This has to be the VERY BEST TUTORIAL ever‼️ I love to crochet and I have a passion for quilts. What a FUN combo. Thanks for providing all the steps in sewing, blanket stitching, crocheting, to blocking & joining our small creations together. Then putting the icing on the cake, the finishing crocheted border. Absolutely Beautiful‼️ This quilt has my for many reasons‼️ I have my first grandchild and plan to outfit Dakota Kathryn’s lil farmhouse bedroom with one of these quilts of her very own. A very Sweet Piece of Love‼️
    Thank you!

  118. I fell in love with this project a few months ago and just about have my blocks crocheted around their edges. I am tickled pink to see to see your joining and border tutorials. Thanks so much for posting – – you do such nice work and enjoy watching.

    1. Thank you so much. I quilt and crochet and you’ve given me a great opportunity to do both. This is now on my bucket list.

  119. I am a beginning crochet girl. When joining the squares with the whip stitch am I supposed to go through both loops or only back loops? Thank you

  120. So happy to learn this !! I love it… I was having difficulty with putting the needle thru the fabric so I bought a Skip Cut Rotary Cutter Blade (45mm). At first with a 6″ square, I couldn’t get 16 across. I am going to try increasing 1/4″ on all sides. ( I did a no-no and used my blade on paper so I could easily count to 16 to see how much to increase the fabric) No more pinned 1/4″ template and the needle goes right thru. I am a little afraid of fraying so this is a trial run. Thanks again for a great tutorial !!

  121. What a beautiful blanket ! I love it.
    Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I keep the explanation. Maybe I will do it in the future (many things to end before).
    Really nice indeed.

  122. I finally finished my High Tea Crochet Quilt and I absolutely love it. It was a lot of work, but so beautiful and different, it was definitely worth it. Thank you so much for your detailed and easy to follow tutorial!

  123. Thanks very much for taking the time to make these several video tutorials, watching a video is so much easier to understand the procedure. I will definitely be making one of these for a new grandson of one of my sisters, a great nephew for me! A couple of things I may do differently will be, I will weave the ends of the yarn, after doing the first blanket stitch, into the inside of the fabric, between the batting and the outside fabrics, and hide it inside, coming out at a couple of places along the outside edge of the square and going back in, I think this will be easier than weaving in and out of the crochet edge. Also, I use the foam interlocking children’s blocks to block my crochet afghan pieces, I’ve drawn several different square sizes, and I use a steamer, and the block dries in about 15 minutes. And I think I will join the square together using a crocket hook and either a slip stitch or single crochet, either on the front or the back of the blanket, depending in whether or not I want the single crochet to be seen, as on the front, as an additional raised effect, or if you want the front to be flat, do the slip stitch or single crochet join on the back. I’m always glad for others’ ideas, and thank you again for posting all of this. I can hardly wait to buy some baby boy fabrics and perhaps a denim blue yarn, and get going!

  124. Now that I’ve found this tutorial, I shared the three videos, but how do I get to keep the rest of the tutorial, pix and crochet diagrams to get a finished project??? I’m self taught, & slow.
    This is beautiful and you did a perfect tutorial!
    Just trying to figure out how I can keep it??
    Thank you so much!!

  125. Thank you for such beautiful inspiration and fabulous tutorial. You inspired me to make my own version for my 9yr old granddaughter. I’ve wanted to try crochet fusion for a while and used your tutorial to help me along. I made 70 squares, and made up a different edging and I’m thrilled with the results. Just hoping my granddaughter will love it and see it as her family heirloom.
    I’ve added it to my Ravelry projects, linking your tutorial. Many thanks again

  126. Very beautiful im trying to make this but i have a question, in row one you said that you will have 80 stitches, i did it twice and i have 86. Because if you have 76 stitches at the beginning, and you need to make 2 more in the cornes i have 84 stitches. Could you please help me. Thanks

  127. Thanks so much for sharing!! I just finished mine. My daughter is expecting a little girl in March. This will make a perfect Christmas gift. Your tutorial was so easy to follow!

  128. This really caught my eye as a beautiful, delicate, Victorian looking quilt. I have since purchased material to do one but I think I am going to attempt to “join as you go” after completing the crochet on the first square. I have used this method on other crochet motif projects. It is good for people like me who may never finish a project when faced with the “joining up” at the end. Thank you for sharing.

  129. This is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing and giving such clear instructions. I have been searching for a style to make a memory quilt to honor my Mom who passed away last year. I saved many of her dresses and blouses and this quilt will be such a sweet way to remember her and to comfort me and my sister. And it has all my favorite sewing and handwork elements – quilting, blanket stitch and lacy crochet!

  130. Thanks I love this! Was going to crochet an afagan for my grandaughter, but now i’m going to try this instead. but will try a bigger size. thanks again.

  131. Ohhhhhh-I have been looking for something to craft with my Mothers Senior Olympic tshirts–She will turn 87 this July and now I know what to make!!!!! Thank You Thank You Thank YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

  132. Hi, love this tutorial, just so beautiful!!
    Can you please tell me what size the square is for the blocking of the finished squares?

    Thanks and kind regards,
    Audz

  133. This is beautiful! My best friend of almost 50 years and I are going to collaborate and make these for our grandbabies!!! She’s going to do the quilting and I, the crocheting. We are so excited to get started! Thank you for sharing this pattern and all the great instructions with us!

  134. I am in love. Got all my fabrics together. I was reading over the instructions. I’m curious, as a quilter, why you used a 1/2″ seam instead of a 1/4″ seam. I’m so “used” to doing 1/4″. Wondering how much altering of instructions I’ll have to do if I go with 1/4″ seam. Thank you for your time and thoughts regards Dayle

  135. I just finished this quilt and it is beautiful! The tutorials are invaluable. Very clear and understandable. Has anyone done this with crochet thread, or a larger hook than a D?

  136. Love Love Love..been wondering what to do with my dads bowling shirts since he has passed away..I will be making this out of those…thank you so much!!

  137. Thank you so much for the tutorial. I have a stack of flannel squares that have been waiting for the right project. I think they will look beautiful done with the crochet.

  138. OMG, this is so beautiful and you are so generous for sharing these fantastic instructions! Thank you so much! You are so imaginative and your work looks so neat and pretty; I wish I could do it so nicely. xx

  139. Started my quilt for my daughter in law
    Only hopes she likes it not like everything else I made for her gets put away and never seen again

  140. So very lovely. Thank you so much for the tutorial.
    I do wish however that there was a Pinterest button available so I could pin it for later.

  142. I love this crochet quilt!!! I have made one and am finishing another for friend’s grandbaby girl twins. Your tutorial has been so helpful. I did choose to go with a different fabric (Anne of Green Gables) but yours is beautiful. Now I’m thinking of doing one in a layer cake size squares, IF I can figure the changes in crochet, lol.
    Thank you again for this helpful tutorial.

  143. That’s a wonderful tutorial. Thank you for breaking it into parts, and for also including the still photos. When I first listened to the first video, I was startled. We have such similar voices and accents, it was almost like listening to myself!

  144. What a fantastic tutorial, thanks for all the detailed instructions!! I want to make something similar but I am wondering if it can be washed and dried like a regular quilt or if it would get out of shape. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  145. Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have just finished one using pink floral flannelette materials and pink baby wool. It turned out gorgeous and is so soft and pretty. Now I want to make another one, I think you have me addicted to fusion quilts.
    Thanks again.

  146. Thank you so much for the tutorial .. I saw this picture and fell in love.
    I am a beginner at crochet work .
    would it be possible to use 5 inch fabric squares for this ?

    Thank you
    Crystal

  147. I love love love this blanket but more so, I love love love this tutorial!!! Thank you very much!!! I have been working on a blanket for my 3yr old granddaughter and I’ve been stuck. This has helped me get past my problems and now I can finally finish her blanket! She and I both thank you for your help

  148. This is so pretty, would love to make one too!!! never seen this combination of quilt and crochet before, but it looks amazing!!! Thank you for sharing!! you have an amazing blog!!

  149. I love this quilt. Im doing the blanket stitch right now. I can’t help but think there is a “right” needle to use. Its so difficult to get the eye through the fabric. any suggestions?

    Thanks for this pattern. Its so beautiful. I can’t wait to give it to my new grand baby in September.
    Debbie

  150. SO GRATEFUL to have found this page!!!!!!!!!!! I kept looking and about gave up on finding a tutorial on how to make lovely quilt like this. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! Your work is flawless and beautiful. And you are just so wonderful to have went to so much trouble to teach us how to do this. God bless and thanks again for sharing your talents and gifts with us.

  151. This is such a beautiful quilt and I have enjoyed putting it together so much.
    I am having quite a bit of difficulty joining each pair of squares – particularly in the middle. I end up with a wonky or off center middle line, despite the rest of it lining up. Have you any tips on how I can fix this? Or what I might be doing wrong?
    It’s really frustrating because I’m so close to finishing it!
    Thank you

  152. I really love this quilt but I have a question you use 6″squares cut from fat quarters can I use 5″charm square packs to avoid the having to cut the larger squares and will that affect the crocheting not sure how to alter the number of stitches you use to make the shell pattern even all round have you tried it at all any advice would appreciated

  153. Just lovely! My granddaughter fell in love with it and it will be her ” from Nannie” annual Christmas gift. Can’t wait to get started!

  154. could you please let me know what the UK equivalent is for crotchet wool used. I’m having difficulty deciding if it’s thin like 2 ply wool or more akin to 4 ply. sorry to be so unknowlegeable. it’s just the terminology is different here. thanks x

  155. Thank you so much for sharing. My quilt came out beautiful with your great instructions. I did 35 squares ( 7 by 5) so it will fit nicely on my quilt rack. You are amazing!!!

  156. Love love love your work! I’m so excited to start this project! Will 5″ square fabric work just as well as the 6″. I found beautiful 5″ fabric squares which I’d like to use. If so, are there any changes in the instructions?
    Please email me at your soonest convenience! Thank you for sharing your talent!

  157. Delightful…
    I found myself nodding in understanding as I was watching.
    It all made sense. Inspiring work and a calm tone. Thanks!
