Pattern Description:

As a gift for a new baby, this quilt is destined to become a cherished keepsake or a practical gift that will be used for many years. The quilt shown above was obviously designed for a boy with fabric ranging from puppy dogs to baseballs and the Boy Scout motto. However it would be just as cute in colors for little girls. Or here's a thought. Change the name to Fido or Spot and it becomes a quick and easy washable throw to protect a favorite chair from the pooch.
The recipient's name is appliqud onto the finished quilt top and edges are left to ravel and soften over time. The backing is made of a soft flannel which keeps baby warm and is soft against the skin.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 40 x 56 inches . Name letters are approximately 8 x 10 inches. At the end of the pattern you will find directions for making this quilt 45 x 60 inches, which should fit a standard toddler bed.

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
  • 1/2 yard each of seven different prints suitable for the recipient. Since I made this for a young boy I went with puppies, boy scouts, etc. in blues and reds.
  • 1 3/4 yards flannel for backing
  • 3/4 yard flannel for binding
  • Batting - 1 piece crib batting
