8 BABY QUILTS!!!!
I used this tutorial to make these baby quilts -
This baby quilt pattern is perfect as it uses my left over backing pieces without having to cut them into smaller pieces. I consider this pattern a win - win as I get rid of the long skinny backing bits and some baby/little child gets a snugly quilt.
The pattern only calls for 3 - 5x40 inches of the focus fabric - just 15 inches.
I was able to piece one top in a hour, only 16 long seams.
They finish at 39x45 inches. Another plus is that I didn't have to piece the backing.
I had 32 10 inch pink flannel 4 patches sitting in a drawer for about 6 years, finally decided to use them. I made 3 quilts with them and am too embarrassed to share them. They are pretty bad. I thought about taking them apart but my success rate of unsewing flannel has been disastrous. Not sure what I will do with this 3 quilts,
I had less than 1/2 yard of the bright fuchsia fabric that I wanted to use in a quilt and this simple chevron pattern was perfect. The background is multi colored dots with small pink hearts.
I had these 6 inch squares in a drawer and made this quick quilt. Cute little Mother Goose characters.
These quilts are going to Ronald McDonald's House.
Only 13 more baby quilts to go!
