HOW TO MAKE A GINGHAM BABY QUILT


How to make a Gingham Baby Quilt.

Sounds simple right?

Crazy simple.

However, I have to admit this is one of my very favorite baby quilts of all time.

 For real.  I’m kind of obsessed with it.

Like already have one cut in blue, black, and green-obsessed with it.  Like, have an orange one cut in the size of a picnic quilt obsessed with it.

Sometimes it’s the simple projects that turn out to be the best.

This quilt is inspired by a vintage piece of gingham that I have had for years.

And one day awhile back I when I was moving my vintage stash I started thinking about how gingham is just a series of solid blocks arranged in a geometric pattern and then….the idea for this baby quilt was born.

To make the quilt top all you need are some 5″ blocks:

*25 of them red

*16 of them white

AND THAT IS IT!

(Then to finish the quilt all you need is 1/4 yard of fabric for binding and 1 and 1/2 yards of fabric for backing.)

Next, you need to layout the pattern using your 5″ blocks

The pattern is simple:  

*There are 9 blocks in each row.

*Row one begins and ends with a red square and alternates between red and pink squares.

*Row two begins and ends with a pink square and alternates between pink and white squares.

*Row three will be exactly like row one.

*Row four will be exactly like row two.  (And this pattern will continue down through row 9 at which point all rows will be completed.)

To construct each row:

*Place the first block of the row squarely on top of the second block of the row with right sides together.

*Stitch together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

*Place the third block of the row squarely on top of the second block of the row with right sides together.

*Stitch together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

*Continue this process working from left to right until you reach the end of the row.

*When the row is finished press the seams towards the pink fabric.

*Repeat this same process on each row.

To finish up the top:

*Place row one on top of row two with right sides together.

*Pin together.

*Stitch together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

*Place row three on top of row two with right sides together.

*Pin together.

*Stitch together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

*Repeat this process until all rows are sewn together.

*Press well.

What’s left to do:

*Decide whether or not you want to quilt the top yourself, send it to a quilter, or tie it.

*Bind the edges.

*Enjoy your quilt
