Are you a quilter? I’m not (yet, never say never, I guess) but I still love quilting cotton. This project is perfect if you have some fat quarters around, or even if you make a special trip to the grocery fabric store!

You’ll need 6 fat quarters (18×22), matching thread and your machine.

First – decide on a layout. I used 4 different fabrics – 2 fat quarters of the same pattern, and then 2 others.

Next – sew together on the 18 inch side 3 fat quarters which will make up the outside of the scarf, and then sew together the other three. Want to know where I got the idea for such a project if I’m not a quilter – pinterest of course – visit here for the full tutorial.

Now, put right sides together and stitch along the long sides of your scarf. I was sure to match up the seams – it’ll look more professional that way!

Don’t forget your label!

Now fold the scarf just like we did in the blocked infinity scarf tutorial. Stitch together, being sure to leave a small opening to turn the scarf right side out.

Pull the scarf right side out – stitch up using the ladder stitch and you’re done!

Ta-da!

What I love most about this scarf is how stiff it is – it holds it’s shape and looks amazing with all the purple tones.

Fold it different ways for different looks.
