Modern Baby Quilt - Tutorial

Whitnee and I have made it through another week of So You Think You're Crafty! This week we made it through with our Modern Baby Quilt. 
In case you aren't familiar with this contest it's a craft contest and someone is voted off every week. It's an anonymous contest so I can't tell you what we designed for this week.  But I can share the tutorial for our Modern Baby Quilt.

Materials needed:
1 Spirit Charm Pack
1/4 Yard Bella Solids Magenta
1/4 Yard Bella Solids Marine
1/4 Yard Bella Solids Prairie Green
1 Yard Bella Solids Natural

From your Natural material you will cut a 14 1/2"x43 1/2" piece. Add a 2 12" strip to each side, as shown in the image above.
Now from your charm pack you will pick out 30 charm squares. Sew them together as shown in the image above.
Now take another piece of the natural material and cut it  18 1/2"x13 1/4 ". Then add a 2 1/2" border all the way around as shown in the image above.
Using our starch applique tutorial you will add the vines, flowers and leaves to your plain sections. For our circles we used a CD as large circle template and for the small circle we used a lid. As shown in the images above.
Now applique the flower in the blue section. Again using the CD as the template for the center of the flower.
Now sew all 3 sections together. Refer to the picture of the whole quilt. Then quilt, bind and enjoy!

I had fun making this little quilt because it's detailed yet it was really fast to make!
Hope you enjoy too!

  1. Very fun piece and great colors and shapes, for baby to enjoy.


  2. Your quilt would be really stimulating for a baby, lovely. Well done on getting through to the next round too.

  3. My favorite part of your tutorial? That you used CD's and canning jar lids as templates! I just finished a quilt using a plate and a glass as templates. :)

  4. I see that you have been being brilliant... again!!! Love your newest creation, very cute!

  5. Cute quilt! I'm pretty sure I voted for the right project this week :)

  6. Absolutely adorable. Love the contrast between the pieced and appliqued sections. Is there a template for the flower petal?

  7. so cute! I have a charm pack and some yardage i should use for this. i had the same question about a template for the petals.

  8. What a cute quilt! Thanks for sharing!

  9. WOW! I'm a girly girl, so I love this colorful baby quilt so much. My favorite part is the huge pink flower. I'm going to try this and give it to my best friend's baby girl. I love reading your blog. If you want to promote fantastic projects from your blog, stop by: www.makemania.com You can take a look at craft projects I've made as well.

  10. I love this quilt. I wanted to make it for my baby girl that I am having in February, but decided to make a smaller version for a doll bed that I made for my daughter for Christmas. It isn't quite as cute as yours but I think it turned out pretty cute. I know she will love it. Thank you for the awesome ideas!

  11. This is SO cute, Natalia! :) I love Spirit.

  12. This is absolutely gorgeous! I featured this on my blog today, http://mothercrafter.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/stimulus-baby-quilts/

  15. Is there a template for the flower petals?

  16. I agree with Shannon Foster from October 20, 2015. Where is the template for the flower petals? The baby quilt is adorable but how do you finish it without the flower petals?
