Modern meets vintage in this so retro, so easy to make baby rag quilt. You start with a vintage print and add a black scottie dog from the 50's and you have a fun baby quilt for today's child. This quilt blanket is so fast and easy you can make one for all the little darlings you know.
The scottie baby quilt is a wholecloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique dog is sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions. There are full size printable patterns for the block appliques. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me at jhaneymdquilter [!at] gmail.com.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
