A baby quilt...Last summer a friend had a baby and of course only shortly before I decided that I was going to make the baby a quilt. Some fabric from my stash and a simple pattern resulted in this baby quilt in record time.
|Split nine-patch quilt|
It isn't very big, only about 35" x 42", but I find that's an ideal size to use in car seats and buggies. AND I simply did not have more of these fabrics I had decided on :)
...how I made it...The pattern is a "split nine-patch" whereby you make a relatively large nine-patch, cut it cross-ways and turn two of the resulting squares around before sewing together again.
In this quilt the nine-patches have either the red, light yellow or light green in the corners. They all have dark blue in the middle-of-the-side squares, and the lighter blue (with yellow) print in the centre:
Cut the nine-patch into quarters:
Shuffle the quarters around in a pleasing arrangement, keeping the direction alternated:
