Personalized Baby Quilt Pattern:
I got the idea for this quilt from a pillow I made for Moda Bake Shop last year. You can see it here, it would be fun to make one to match the quilt using your scraps.
Supplies for Baby Quilt:
Layer Cake or 10″ stacker of fabric. (you can use 1 layer cake for both quilts) I used Tweet Tweet by Keiki
1-yard white fabric per quilt for the center
1-yard fabric per quilt for backing
1/2 yard fabric per quilt for binding
Heat N Bond Lite
Buttons, colored thread to embellish applique
Smiley Monster Font (can be downloaded free)
Sew one of the 3 block strips to the 29 1/2″ side of the white fabric. Repeat by sewing the other 3 block strip to the other side.
Sew the 4 block strips to the other 2 sides of the white block. Press. Trim off excess if necessary.
Quilt as desired. I quilted mine with a walking foot in straight lines approximately 2″ apart.
Using a word processing program and the font Smiley Monster, print your name approx 4″ tall. You may need to make it slightly smaller if you are printing a large name.
Trace the letters backward onto the slick side of a piece of Heat n Bond Lite. Cut out roughly and iron onto the wrong side of the fabric. Cut out. You can see photos of my applique method here.
Apply to lower right-hand corner of the quilted top approx. 2″ from the bottom border.
