This cute little baby quilt was made as a pram or stroller blanket but can be adjusted to whatever size you wish by adding more four patch blocks in the center and wider borders.
This quilt measures 26" x 28".
To make it you will need:
1/2 metre of feature nursery fabric
1/2 metre of pale pink
fat quarter of white
fat quarter pale blue
Scraps in matching fabric for the hearts
small amount of fusible ( bondaweb ) for the applique
piece of backing fabric measuring approx 30" x 34"
piece of wadding ( batting) measuring the same as the backing.
Cut 2" strips from the white and the pink.
Sew one pink strip and one white strip together and cut into 2" segments. I press these seams open.
Make 20 four patch units and sew them together in a 5 x 4 formation.
Next cut 4 x 1 1/2 " strips from the pale blue fabric.
You could measure your center section to get the exact length of strips you need but for something this small I add the strips and cut off the excess.
Of course I would never do it this way on a large quilt but for something this small. its ok.
Cut 4 x 2 1/2 " strips from the pale pink fabric and sew these borders on. Press towards the pink.
For the next round cut 4 x 4 1/2" strips from the feature fabric and sew these on.
Finally using bondaweb, or any other method of applique. add a few scattered hearts of different sizes in a pleasing arrangement on the quilt top. I machine appliqued my hearts on using a close together zig zag stitch.
Now you can make up your quilt sandwich and quilt as desired.
I used Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 wadding.
Make sure you outline your hearts to make them stand out.
Use the remainder of the pale pink fabric to make binding and finish your quilt.
