Let’s get to work!
At the same time I’m working on my quilt, I make a stop to share with you how it looks now, and today my quilt reached the perfect size for a baby quilt, it didn’t take long to make 12 blocks and sew them together with the borders and this morning it looks like a baby quilt.
I won’t quilt it as I will keep working on making more blocks to reach the next size, the lap quilt and after it the twin size, so I can share with you how many blocks you need to make for each one of these quilts.
ABC Baby Quilt.
You will need to make 12 blocks to make this cute baby quilt.
Four rows of three blocks each one. You can download the PDF to make the blocks and the three first free patterns for the appliques here.
If you want to make this baby quilt, I will suggest to you to make the 12 blocks first and iron each one of them, so you can work on the applique.
You will need to work on the applique of each block first before you sew the blocks together with the borders, it’s easier to work on the applique on each block first.
Once you get the 12 blocks with the applique, you can sew them together to make the baby quilt top.
You will need to cut 62 pieces of 2 x 5 ” in different color and 20 pieces of 2 x 2 ” in color beige.
If you have made a quilt before, the baby quilt picture will give you an idea to work to sew together the baby quilt.
If you’re a beginner quilter, I will get for you a diagram on how you need to work to sew the rows of the quilt first and then sew them together to make the top of the quilt soon, I will let you know when it’s ready so you can follow it, like my Facebook page Alejandra’s Quilt Studio to be the first one to get the updates of my quilts.
Make the sandwich.
Once you get the baby quilt top done, you can make the sandwich by placing the three layers of fabric to make a quilt, the back fabric facing down, then the quilting fabric or batting and on the top the baby quilt top facing up.
Place safety pins to hold the three layers in its place, and the sandwich is ready to be quilted.
You can quilt this baby quilt by hand or by machine, I’m sure it will look nice when you finish it.
Next stop: lap quilt.
While you work on the quilting and the finish of the baby quilt, I will keep working on more blocks until I reach the size of a lap quilt, so I can share with you more free patterns for the applique and the update on how many blocks and border pieces you will need to make to make this lap quilt.
