Here's a recipe for a very simple baby quilt.
Begin with ONE very cute fat quarter.
Divide the fat quarter into FOUR equal parts.
My four pieces were 9"x10".
Add a dash of 2 1/2" strips.
Finish with a 6" border on the top and bottom.
This is called ...
The lazy man's way to a longer quilt. ;)
THIS my friends....
Is the secret ingredient!
Add a backing. Quilt and bind.
Linking up with Sarah and AmandaJean this week!
Very cute, and quick. Thanks for the directions.ReplyDelete
I love your sweet cuddle quilt idea. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Too cute!!! I am collecting men's shirts too and plan to make a neutrals quilts from them. Now you've given me a new idea for my newest grandson! Yippee Skippee!!!!ReplyDelete
Your full of simple but great ideas! It's beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow, another great idea; I appreciate the ingredients!ReplyDelete
i think i might have to make one of these...i love the addition of the mens shirt fabricsReplyDelete
This is very cool pattern. I did a quick estimate and I come up with a quilt that measures 36 ish by 50 ish. Is that correct? That's a great size for such a little bit of work. Another great idea. ThanksReplyDelete
And very cute!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing such a great recipe and sharing your secret ingredient.
That's a great idea! I've got some really cute "zoo" fabric. I think I'll incorporate that into the next baby's quilt. (I've got a new grand (#8) on the way.) It'll make a fun little quilt that is non-gender and I won't have to worry about the color. Thanks for showing yours. (Isn't the Blogging Community great. Mine won't look anything like yours, but your idea sparked mine.)ReplyDelete
That is a simple and cute quilt. I like your focus fabric. One could do just about anything baby-themed with this and it would turn out so cute.ReplyDelete
Looks yummy and like something I'd enjoy cooking up. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Very very cute - and I love using men's shirts in my quilts! My poor hubby has to put up with me eyeing (and stroking) his shirts as I consider how much longer he might wear it before I can get my hands on it to cut up......ReplyDelete
very cute beth!!ReplyDelete
I now buy shirts for my husband with an eye towards using them
in future quilts, shhhhh don't tell him :0)
You are THE BEST, Beth!! I love this baby quilt and I am going to make one too. :) Thank you for sharing so freely with us.ReplyDelete

Cuddly baby quilts are the best kind! Great finish!ReplyDelete
Oh man, that's so cute! I just spent all week on a baby quilt, and I'm loving this! I'll keep my eyes peels for men's shirts at goodwill :-)ReplyDelete
