This Scrappy Baby Quilt Will Also Look Great On a Wall or Table!

This beautiful pinwheel quilt was designed to be a baby quilt but it appeals to all ages. While any new parent would love having this for their child, this quilt is more than that.

Its cheerful good looks would add charm to a wall or table, or even draped over the sofa.

All it takes to make this quilt is one charm pack (of at least 40 5″ squares) and solid white (or another color) for the background.

The charm squares give it a patchwork scrappy look. You could easily achieve a similar look from fabric scraps and a mix of fabrics from your stash.

Notice how the color of the binding pulls the quilt together.

What makes this quilt extra special is the prairie point inner border. If you haven’t tried prairie points before, this quilt is worth learning on.

The border will sew together much faster than you might imagine. Between that and the large pinwheel squares, this project is a quick one for both beginning and experienced quilters.

The finished size of this quilt, designed by Jodi Nelson, is 36″ x 44″. You could easily make it larger by adding more rows of pinwheel blocks.
