Best, fast baby quilt!
For a very long time, I have been referring to a quilt pattern that I love to use when I am in a hurry to make a quilt. I use this pattern for baby quilts, healing quilts (lap size), twin bed quilts and even a queen size bed quilt that my sister and I made as a wedding gift. It is my "go to" pattern.
The quilt pictured on the left was made only slightly different than the pattern in that I substituted one block with an embroidered block. This size quilt is made mostly with 4 fat quarters, about a yard of focus fabric and just a little additional fabric for a border (or two). I can cut, sew and quilt this baby quilt in about 3 hours.
Here is a link to the pattern. I think it may be the only place you can buy it. (I got mine through QNN years ago as a freebie.) Other baby quilts I have made with this pattern are here, here and here. As you will see, I have used quilting cotton, flannel, chenille and even a little Minky. I have quilted it with a big meander, loops and swirls and even straight line stitching.
Since the pattern is not pictured on the order page, if you have any questions about the pattern that I can answer, please leave a comment and I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
