Itty Bitty Babies



















Hello again, I am Natalia Bonner from Piece N Quilt. Stop by my blog and say hi! I am really excited to be able to share these baby quilts here today. I really wanted to design a quilt that was just as cute for boy as for a girl. I hope you enjoy them.
Kits are available @ Piece N Quilt.
Boy version here.
Girl version here.
1 3/4  Yards Verna Clover Earth for backing.
  



Start by cutting your brown charm pack and one of your natural charm packs in half. Make sure to set one of your natural charm packs aside for now.
 















Cut 23, 1" x width strips from your Robins Egg material.
Now cut those 1" strips into 5" x 1" strips.
Sewing:
Start by sewing a 1" strip into your charm squares.
After sewing those blocks, turn the charm blocks and cut them in half again.
Sew another blue strip into the blocks.
You should have 84 blocks that look like this, 42 of each color scheme.

Open your charm pack that you had set aside in the beginning.

Cut 3 of the charm squares in half on the diagonal.
Take your natural blocks that you have added the blue to and cut them in half on the diagonal.
Take one of those blocks and cut it in half on the opposite diagonal for your 4 corner blocks.
Use the image below and lay your blocks out.
Download the applique pieces included in the printer friendly version. Use our starch applique tutorial and applique the words and shapes onto your quilt.
Quilt, bind and enjoy!

Cute - I thought that the blue/pinks were appliqued over a checkerboard! So this is clever too!

These are just so precious! I have a few expectant friends -- can't wait to find out if we are sewing pink, blue, green -- oh, the possibilities!

I never comment on these wonderful recipes.....until now! WOWOWOW!! These are creative, fabulous, and wonderful! Thank you for an AWESOME recipe!!

Deb said...

Beautiful quilts! Can't wait for someone I know to need a baby quilt so I can make this one. I have a question agbout the pattern, though. After you put the blue strips into the while blocks, the directions say "Take your natural blocks that you have added the blue to and cut them in half on the diagonal." How many of the blocks do you cut in half? Certainly not all of them, right?

Again, love the design - so different, yet classy.

Megs said...

In the photos, the quilts look like black/pink or black/blue. But you made them with a brown?

hidngat39 said...

I totally love this idea-great job!
I might make it with everything the same except switch the pink or blue to something neutral like green or purple since I don't know what the babies are and I need to get started! Thank for the inspiration!

Yycien said...

What a fabulous idea! Love this little project. I have to attend a baby shower this july, and for sure my close friend is expecting something from me since I promised to give her a unique baby gifts . Well, I need more time to think of this, LOL :)

Autumn said...

I absolutly adore these. I have a co-worker with twins (1 boy 1 girl) on the way and am so excited to use this pattern.

GailM. said...

I MADE IT... It's sweet. Come to my blog to have a look. Now I want to make the pink one... Thanks Natalia for such a sweet pattern

Sara said...

how can i have missed this one? SOOOOOO cute! I love how you added the space across the bottom to break up the argyle and add some appliqué! Fabulous!
