Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Intermediate quilter with good sewing hand embroidery skills.
  • Will learn how to do turned hem appliqu.

Pattern Description:

This baby quilt was designed for a mom that had a great sense of style and didn't want her nursery to look like every other blue or pink room on the block. It is gray and cream with just a little bit of yellow. But you could just as easily make it in blue and cream with some accents in primary colors. I can see a red wagon and yellow, blue and red blocks. If you wanted it to look a bit more girly, pink and cream with a doll in place of the ball and bat. This project combines basic quilting with appliqu and embroidery, so it gives the intermediate crafter a chance to use multiple needlework skills. Though this was designed to be a baby quilt, it is quite a bit larger than the standard crib quilt and as a result, it will work equally well as a cover for a toddler bed.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 45 x 60 inches

Materials:

  • Rotary cutting tools (self healing mat, rotary cutter, quilter's ruler) Note: pieces may be cut by hand with scissors, but it is much faster and more accurate to use a rotary cutter.
  • Sewing machine with patchwork quilting foot, used to ensure standardized 1/4 inch seam allowances. However if your machine provides another method for this, or you are good at maintaining a fixed width seam allowance, you may not need a special presser foot.
  • Quilter's pins - these are bent safety pins and are used for basting. You may baste layers of quilt with thread, but again, pins are faster and easier.
  • Seam ripper, thread clipper or embroidery scissors, sewing gauge or ruler.
  • Quilting frame or hoop if you are going to quilt by hand
  • Approximately 4 1/2 yard of fabric for quilt top. Details provided in pattern
  • Backing Fabric1 1/2
  • Fusible interfacing1
  • Batting - one piece lightweight cotton batting measuring at least 51 x 66.

You Will Also Need:

  • Fusible interfacing - if using the appliqu method described here, you will need about a a yard of medium to heavy weight fusible interfacing.
  • Thread - sewing thread to coordinate with selected materials along with hand quilting thread in a coordinating or contrasting color
  • Embroidery thread to coordinate with quilt colors for adding detail to the appliqud images. I used two shades of gray and two of yellow.
