Baby Quilts

Create a cuddly quilt for the bundle of joy.

Fabric for one block:

one 6-1/2" block — this is the window
one light piece of fabric cut at 2-1/2" x 6-1/2"
one dark piece of fabric cut at 2-1/2" x 6-1/2"
one 2-7/8" square of light fabric
one 2-7/8" square of dark fabric

Steps:

  1. Cut out all of the pieces described above.

  2. To make the corner, draw a line on the wrong side of the light square from one corner to the other.
  3. Place the light square and dark square right sides together and stitch 1/4" on both sides of the line you previously drew.
  4. Cut on the center line, press seam allowances toward the dark fabric and trim off any excess fabric.
  5. Sew the light rectangle to the bottom of the window block.

  6. Sew the corner square to the bottom of the dark rectangle, then sew the two units together.
  7. Continue the following steps to create more blocks.
  8. The sashing that goes in between the "windows" are as follows.
Short pieces need to be cut at 1-1/2" x 8-1/2".
Long pieces need to be cut at 1-1/2" x 26-1/2".

Sew these into place and add your inner and outer borders.
