{DIY} No Sew Quilt Wall Art Tutorial

No Sew Quilt Wall Art {The Preppy Strawberry}



Don’t let the word quilt scare you away!  This project involves  absolutely  no sewing!  If you have the patience to cut and glue fabric squares then this is the perfecting quilting project for you! 

Let me first say, I’ve never quilted before in my life but when I saw this project first pop up on pinterest it caught my eye!   I followed the directions from Amanda at Crazy Mom quilts  <—(click to see her tutorial on this project.)

I would love to make t-shirt quilt for my daughter one day.  I started saving t-shirts when my daughter was a baby.  As she outgrew a fun t-shirt, I stashed it away now after almost 7 years of doing this I have a nice little pile of random t-shirts.  hopefully one day they will all find themselves on a quilt!


 This project was super easy and lots of fun to make!  The hardest part was arranging the fabric pieces on the canvas – so with a little patience any one can do this project!  I bought a few extra canvases and might let Lilly make one for her bedroom. 


So you ready to make one? 



Follow the steps below and start creating your No Sew Quilt Wall Art!


Modge Podge ( matte finish)

Canvas ( 11X14) was the size I used

fabric scraps – cut up – any shapes and sizes!  Have fun with it! 


Step 1, I just set the fabric scraps on my canvas and I played with where I wanted to place my fabric. 

Project idea from Crazy Mom Quilts

Step 2 – You will need your modge  podge, scrap paper, and paint brush in this net step.  Here you are  going to glue the fabric to the canvas.  In this step, I glued all the pieces down first and let those dry .  Once it dries a little I went over each piece with modge podge and set it aside to dry
