It's a Hoot Baby Quilt



Hi there!  I'm Amy from Amy's Creative Side and I have a quick baby quilt to share with you!  If you need a bigger quilt, this could easily be adapted - just add an extra charm pack or jelly roll!  I'm using a traditional block and showing you how you can easily make an adorable quilt, with just a touch of cutting.  Enjoy~



It's a Hoot Layer Cake

Pistachio 32378 17- 1/2 yd

Marshmallow 32370 15 - 2 yds

Bella white 9900 98 - 3/4yd


Select 12 layer cake squares to be trimmed down for blocks.  Center any desired focal and trim to 8 1/2"

Select 13 layer cake squares to cut 2 1/2" squares from.  I used my Go! Cutter, to cut in one direction, then in the other.  You need 8 squares from each layer cake.
From the solid white, cut 7 - 2 1/2" strips, then crosscut into 52 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles.
Piece your blocks according to the layout.
Next add, white rectangles to the sides of your four-patch.  Press, then add the top and bottom, to complete the block.
With 25 blocks, you are ready to assemble your top!  Layout your quilt with the pieced blocks in the corners, and alternate with layer cake squares (as shown in my quilt).
Quilt and bind to finish!

It's a Hoot Baby - or - one adorable baby quilt!!  It measures 40" square.  Here's the back so you can better see my quilting.  I used my walking foot to add dimension around the pieced blocks, and diagonals to the non-pieced blocks.


Happy Quilting ~

Amy Ellis

I love baby quilts and the new owl rage, but this is the best I've seen!

Ester Jean said...

These fabrics are so beautiful, and this pattern looks lovely, yet easy! I have only made 2 quilts thus far, and stippled only one (it trashed my poor machine and my back, so clearly I wasn't doing it right!) - for now I am sticking to the straight stitching as much as I can, and I really like the detail your method adds. Very nice work! Thank you for sharing!
