Quilt As You Go iPad Case

My husband and I have a rule that we don’t get each other Christmas presents. For a few reasons, but mainly because if we really want something, we usually just buy it (or wait until it gets discounted!) So that naughty husband of mine broke the rules this year and bought me an iPad. I was very excited, but also felt a twinge of guilt that I had stuck to the rule and bought him nothing for Christmas.

After Christmas we had lots of family around and it gave me some good time to relax and get a lot of sewing done. One of the first things I did was make myself a case for my new iPad.

I’d seen a few quilt as you go projects around and I really wanted to try it. I used this tutorial by Oh, Fransson! and it was really great.

The panel has a few wonky bits but as far as a first time qayg project goes I think it came out well!

I used fabrics I had in my stash. They are:

Mustard – Love Birds by Michael Miller and the two that look like little flowers in the wind are  pieces from an Umbrella Prints Trimmings Pack.

Blues – Bright Sky Dot, Bright Sky Twiggy and and Bright Sky Tiny Deer, all from Oh Deer! by Momo for Moda.

Grey – small dot and large dot, both from an Umbrella Prints trimmings pack.

I decided the back didn’t need to be another qayg panel, so I just quilted a piece of the Bright Sky Twiggy fabric, which I love.

I used the fabulous iPad case tutorial by One Shabby Chick. It is a really great tutorial which I used last year when I made a cover for my sister for her birthday.

It fits perfectly both with and without the protective case I have on the iPad.

I’m finding myself quite addicted to the qayg method – have you tried it? What have you made?

  1. I want to make this but am wondering what the inside looks like? Is it the backing of the qayg (canvas or other stiff fabric) or did you sew other fabric to it? Thanks.

    1. Hi, yes there is a lining fabric. In the original tutorial by One Shabby Chick she shares how to sew the lining, leaving a gap and turning it through. Hope that helps :)
