Simply Sweet Baby Quilt

I finished the baby girl quilt that I am donating to the PTO for a raffle at my son’s school. I am having a little bit of a hard time parting with it because I really like it! Hopefully others will too and they will purchase raffle tickets!
Though this quilt is very simple, it is sometimes nice to have someone do the math for you so I am going to share a mini tutorial for this quilt with you.

The finished quilt measures approximately 32″ x 43″ which is perfect for the craft size batting or using pieced batting scraps.

I started by cutting a bunch of strips from scraps that measured 2 1/2″ wide. I then sewed them together length wise, randomly. It’s a great way to use up scraps. I stitched these lengths into 4 different groups and then cut them all vertically into 2 1/2″ strips. Then I randomly sewed sections together to create 6 strips of 22 squares each.

For the sashing, I cut 6 strips that are 2 1/2″ x 42 1/2″ and one that is 8 1/2″ x 42 1/2″.

I used the same material for the sashing and the backing and a pink polka dot for the binding. The quilting is a simple stipple.

Most importantly, it passed the baby test.
