the one with the easiest baby quilt EVER.

09 December 2012

easiest baby quilt EVER.
sometimes, simple is better, right?!?!
as a momma of four, i love it when i can simplify things.
especially when my to do list is long and the holidays are upon us.

easiest baby quilt EVER.
hubby had a friend at work that was expecting, so he asked me to make a baby quilt.
i had the perfect fabric in mind for months, but i just couldn't settle on a pattern.
one day i decided to just go with stripes.
i knew the fabrics were bold enough to support something simplistic, so i ran with it.

this quilt is SO easy, that y'all won't need a full tutorial, but here's how to make it ...

adorable girlie fabrics.
what y'all will need:
1/4 yard cuts of 10 different prints
1/3 yard binding
1 yard backing

the making part:
from each of the 10 prints, cut 1 strip, 4 1/2" x WOF
from the solid, cut 5 strips, 2 1/4" x WOF (binding)

piece all your printed strips together.
to avoid warping, stitch the strips in pairs then join the pairs together.

you will need to trim some of the width off of your quilt top to omit any visible selvedges.
note: depending on the fabrics, some selvedges are wider than others.

layer, baste & quilt. (i did straight line quilting using my walking foot.)
bind with solid strips.

and you're done.

easiest baby quilt EVER.
like i said, it's simple and can easily be done during nap time.
ask me how i know this.

oh and for those inquring minds ...
