Mini Keychain for Quilting As You Go

This tutorial is all about how I made a mini quilted keychain using a quilt-as-you-go method.

Materials Needed:

– Backing fabric square – Fabric scraps – Scrap of ribbon – Two buttons

Step 1: Choose your backing fabric

The backing square was 4″ by 4″ so I took that as my starting point.

Step 2: Cut your batting square

I ended up doing two versions of this, for the first my batting square was slightly smaller – about 2 &1/4″ square and for my second I cut my batting square a bit bigger to 2 & 3/4″ square.

I found some fabric scraps I liked the look of and even a couple crumbs that had puncture marks in them from a previous sewing project!

Step 3: Pick your Scraps!

Step 4: Get quilting!

I placed my first two strips right sides together diagonally on my batting square and sewed through the strips, the batting and the backing all at once.

When I was done sewing on my strips I flipped the block over and pinned back the excess backing fabric.

Step 5: Cut off excess
