Happy Patchwork Baby Quilt

July 20, 2010

Sewing/Crochet

I call this one my happy patchwork baby quilt because the colors are just that… happy!

Don’t they make you smile?

I’d been wanting to try out one of the patterns from Amy Butler’s Little Stitches for Little Ones.

This one was a little bit more complicated than my last two quilts, but still pretty easy for a beginner. I used a hi-loft polyester batting to give it more dimension and cushiness (is that a word?!) *lol* Here’s a close-up…

It is backed with solid blue flannel and I think it will make a great crib quilt or floor mat for playtime.

    This quilt is adorable! I bought the Amy Butler Little Stitches at Borders over the summer when they had their big “parking lot sale” for under $5. I have been wanting to get started on making stuff from it but there are so many awesome ideas I don’t know which ones to do first.

    P.S. I found you via City Craft – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that store

      What a deal for $5! This really is a fab book. I’ve been wanting to try the kimono PJs at some point as well. Too many projects…too little time. 🙂 Agreed on CityCraft – it’s an addiction!

      Hi Ina,

      You can find all the pattern details in Amy Butler’s book (link in post)… but the total yardage needed is 7/8 yard each of two different mid-weight prints for the front (prints A/B), 1/2 yard each of two different mid-weight prints for the front (prints C/D), and 2 1/4 yards coordinating mid-weight fabric for back and binding.

      Hope that helps! Happy sewing!
