A couple of months ago, a family from church had a new baby boy and I wanted to make the baby something special. I remembered that when our three-year-old was born a family friend made our son a little baby quilt and I loved it. I was so touched that she would spend so much time making a gift for our family. Using some cute fabric that was given to me by a friend, I decided to make a simple, yet certainly adorable, baby quilt for a family that we know from church.
This quilt came together so quickly that I didn’t even have enough time to take pictures of the process. 🙂 I would consider myself a rather novice quilter, so this little quilt is far from perfect, but I believe all of the imperfections make it even more charming. I’m fairly confident that if I can make this, then I’m pretty sure almost anyone can.
Each square was cut into a 4 1/2 inch square. Then when they were all sewn together with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, the quilt ended up being about 24 x 32 inches. To quilt it, I used my regular sewing machine with the walking foot attached. I put a piece of painter’s tape right down the middle of each seam and then sewed 1/4 inch from the tape on each side. I think that turned out pretty well, and helped since my squares weren’t all perfectly square.
This cute baby quilt can be just wonderful for tummy time or playing on the floor. Simple Baby Quilts are definitely a special gift to give to new babies and their parents!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
