Tutorial for “Stampin’ Up” fabric baby quilt

Admission:  I am horrible at naming quilts.

Knowing that, here is a quick tutorial on how to make the “Stampin’ Up” fabric baby quilt.

(No, you don’t need this fabric to make this quilt.)  🙂

Each block is made sewing together 9 pieces of fabric.

one (1) 4.5 x 4.5 inch square (patterned fabric)

two (2) 4.5 x 1.5 inch white strips

two (2) 6.5 x 1.5 inch white strips

two (2) 6.5 x 1.5 inch patterned strips

two (2) 8.5 x 1.5 inch patterned strips

 

Step 1).  Sew the 4.5 x 1.5 inch white strips to opposite sides of the 4.5 x 4.5 inch square.  Press seams.

Step 2)  Sew the 6.5 x 1.5 inch white strips to the top and bottom of resulting block (from step 1). Press seams.  Your block should now be 6.5 inches square, with the patterned fabric measuring a finished 4 inches square, framed by a white border, now 1.25 inches thick.

Step 3)  Sew the 6.5 x 1.5 inch patterned strips to the sides of the block.  Press seams.

Step 4)  Sew the 8.5 x 1.5 inch patterned strips to the top and bottom of the block.  Press seams.  Your block should now be 8.5 inches square, with the white border now measuring 1 inch thick all around, and the patterned border 1.25 inches thick.  After being sewn together, the final block will be 8 inches square.

For this baby quilt, I made 20 of these blocks and arranged them in 5 rows of 4 blocks. This resulted in a baby quilt that was 32.5 inches wide and 40.5 inches long.

For a twin sized quilt, I recommend making 88 blocks and arranging them in 11 rows of 8 (or for a larger twin, have 12 rows of 9 blocks.)

Good luck!  If you make this quilt, I would love to see it!
