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 by 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 the 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!
