It’s Easy to Enlarge Too!
This darling baby quilt is a simple project that you can finish quickly. Start with a jelly roll of 2 1/2″ strips or 2 1/2″ squares from your scrap basket.
Pair the colorful squares with lightweight linen (such as that found here) for beautiful results. Fresh, soft colors are so pretty but stronger prints will be great too.
While intended as a baby quilt, it can also be used as a lap quilt. Or make it larger by piecing more squares. You’ll also need to piece longer strips of linen to alternate with the rows of squares.
If you’re in a hurry, consider tieing the quilt rather than quilting it. Instructions are provided for an updated tied look.
Instructions are also provided for an embroidered label (or use a permanent marker). It’s simple to make and nice for any quilt.
The finished quilt from Gathered is approximately 30″ x 42″.
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
