It will be lovely used as a tablecloth, too. Or, add more bandanas for a larger bed sized quilt. This one is perfect for the summer but make yours any color you want.
Bandanas are available in a multitude of pretty colors, they’re 100% cotton and they provide a charming casual effect wherever they are used. Amazon has a great selection to choose from, which you can see here.
Just be sure to wash your quilt with color catcher sheets, as bandanas tend to bleed. In fact, it’s a good idea to wash the bandanas first, as they do shrink, then use color catchers in subsequent washes.
“Bandana Quilt” found on Pots and Pins. It was made from 18″ squares and measures 54″ x 54″. It has a standard backing, overall quilting and binding.
Bandanas never seem to be the exact same size. That’s OK for this casual quilt. Don’t worry if the corners don’t match perfectly. Or, trim them all to a consistent size if you prefer (it never hurts to cut off the hems so the quilt lays perfectly flat).
The quilt has minimal quilting, but you can quilt it as much as you want. It’s a great project for practicing free motion stipple quilting on once the quilt is turned.
Dimensions are not provided for the finished quilt. It will depend on how large the bandanas are that you choose.
