    Hi ladies
    i feel so encouraged for the response I got for ' my quilts' thread. Many friends asked me step by step method for making those quilts. So here am writing how I made it. Hope it will help u all.
    for the quilt-1 ( navi blue n white dots )
    I have taken 3 meters each
    navi blue with dots- 3 meters
    white with dots- 3 meters
    so 6 meters of total cloth for the whole quilt
    i made 8*8 or 10*10 ( I did not remember exactly) squares
    then the squares are cut into 2 triangles
    now I stitched one triangle of blue clothe n one triangle of white cloth together to form a square
    so u need to make 24 squares like above
    ( u need to iron all the squares properly and trim all the sides of the squares. If u r using proper quilting accessories then u will not face any problem. Like quilt board , quilt cutter.when I made my first quilt I don't have those so I faced lot of problem)
    after ironing all the squares ::
    first make the pattern with squares on the floor as it is in the pic which I sent
    then start stitching
    4 squares each- 6 horizontal lines
    now stitch all 6 horizontal lines
    Now for borders
    2-1/2 meters blue
    3-1/2 meters white
    2- meters blue
    3-1/2 meters white
    4 meters blue for biasing
    after adding all the borders u will get a flat sheet.for this flat sheet u need to take same size batting. Then a plain cloth of ur choice beneath the batting.
    So first is plain cloth( I put white cloth) then comes battin and on top of batting comes ur flat sheet which u made.
    Now do free hand quilting to bind all the above three. Then trim all the four sides now do the biasing. Ur quilt will b ready.

    please forgive me for any mistakes.hope this will b helpful. If need any more explanation let me know.

    thank you
    regards
    Padma

    Thank you for detailed explanation. I want to know what is 'Batting material'. What material did you use for your quilt and how much.
