It Will be Lovely as a Table Topper, Too!

If you’re looking for a memorable baby shower gift that’s different than the usual onesies and burp cloths look no further. This sweet playmat is simple to construct yet steps way outside of the arena of typical (and boring) baby shower gifts. Plus, it’s way faster to complete than many baby quilts are.

The Cathedral Window design is constructed using a method that requires no basting, no traditional quilting, and no binding. Yet it’s soft and cushie to protect young ones from hard floors and charming to look at.

In fact, it’s so pretty we’d gladly use it as a table topper (perhaps with less cushie batting). Plus, it will be wonderful in many color combinations. It’s perfect for a pretty layer cake of 10″ squares you haven’t known what to do with.

The pattern, from Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock, produces a  24″ x 29″ mat.

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!
