I made a baby. Then I made a quilt. Then I put the baby on the quilt.
The title says it all really. If you don’t want to look at cute photos of my baby on his new quilt, then stop reading now!
I used 12 squares of patchwork effect fabric which I cut into separate squares, and 12 squares of red gingham, and sewed them all together into a patchwork quilt top.
I used red fleece for the quilt backing, to make it extra snuggly and warm.
I used pre-made wide bias binding to bind the edges, and as you can see I didn’t bother with mitred corners!
I didn’t have much of the kid’s fabric left, so there’s quite a bit of repetition, but it was good for de-stashing as I had this fabric since 2009!
This is my third quilt and definitely the easiest – probably because the patchwork squares are so big and the only quilting I did was straight lines along the patchwork seams. I just wanted to keep this simple and stress-free!
And now, I will leave you with a ton of photos. I couldn’t resist choosing them all, so these pictures are really more about the baby than the quilt. I hope you will forgive me!
So, there you have it. Rufus’s new quilt.
