A Bit of Hand Quilting Provides Pretty Detail!
Simple piecing makes this lovely baby quilt a quick finish, and is perfect for beginning quilters. Plaids, ginghams, polka dots and stripes in blue and white make it perfect for a little boy.
The quilt will be lovely in other colors as well. Pink and white will be lovely, or select colors you know the mom will enjoy. Choose print styles that fit with your interpretation.
Notice how the quilt is both hand and machine quilted. The hand quilting adds a lovely touch and is done big-stitch style with perle cotton. However, feel free to do all machine quilting or quilt it all by hand.
The finished quilted, designed by Julie from Mack and Mabel, is 36″ x 44″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
