Want to learn a fast and simple baby quilting pattern?
You've come to the right place.
We'll go over one of the easiest patterns available and how to make it.
We have several patterns across this site that you can incorporate for a baby quilt. There’s one that stands above the others as our favorite when pressed for time.
That would be the Checker Board. This design has alternating squares. The size of each square is 6 x 6 inches, making it easy to calculate how big to make your quilt.
For a bit of flare you can use an embroidery design in the center of some or all of the squares. Of course this is more time consuming. Don’t tackle this method unless you have the time for that.
Otherwise, stick with the basic design.
We’ll go over how to make it today.
First select which two colors you want the fabric to be.
The sex of the baby might help you determine the colors. If you don’t know if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl, it might be a good idea to go with soft pink and baby blue.
Here are a couple of color samples:
Cut fabric into 6 ½ x 6 ½ inch squares. Make as many as you need to complete the project. Everyone likes their quilts bigger or smaller than just the standard. Our recommendation is 7 blocks across by 9 in length, making it roughly a crib size quilt.
Stitch alternating blocks together with right sides touching.
Sew as many blocks together to make the rows.
Then sew rows together until your quilting top is done.
Compile the quilting cookie. Remember to think of an Oreo cookie. Top and bottom fabrics sandwiching the filling/batting.
Finish the quilt with the technique of your choosing. We recommend stitching in the ditch if you used any embroidery designs in the blocks.
That’s the quickest and easiest baby quilting pattern you’ll ever come across. Try it with embroidery and see how creative you can be. It’s sure to be a masterpiece!
Until next time.
