tutorial: baby doll quilt



here are the basic instructions to make this baby doll quilt
what you will need:
18 squares of white fabric cut to 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches
18 squares (two of each fabric to be used in each pinwheel block) of patterned fabric
2 strips of white cut to 3 by 10 inches
2 strips of white cut to 3 by 15 inches
2 strips of red gingham cut to 1 by 15 inches
2 strips of red gingham cut to 1 by 16 inches
2 strips of white cut to 1 1/2 by 16 inches
2 strips of white cut to 1 1/2 by 18 inches

you will want to follow the directions on how to make a pinwheel.
instead of starting out with 5 inch blocks (like i had you do in the big size quilt) you are going to start with 2 1/2 inch blocks.
make 9 pinwheels

next we are going to make the borders:
for the left and right side of your quilt you need two strips of white cut to 3 by 10 inches
sew it to your left and right side.
next take your 2 strips of 3 by 15 inches and sew them to the top and bottom of your quilt

next we are going to do the red border:
take your 2 strips of 1 by 15 inches and sew them to your left and right side of your quilt.
take your 2 strips of 1 by 16 inches and sew them to the top and bottom of your quilt.
next we are doing the outside (and last) border:
take your two strips of 1 1/2 by 16 inches and sew them to the left and right of your quilt.
take your two strips of 1 1/2 by 18 inches and sew them to the top and bottom of your quilt.


make a sandwich of quilt top, batting, and backing fabric.
quilt or tie.
bind your quilt!
super cute little quilt complete!

Super cute indeed.
The pattern and lightness reminds me that spring will arrive... sooner or later.

I have something like this drafted out for a wallhanging for a friend. Now I don't have to figure the rest of it out - I'll just follow your instructions!

How did I miss this tutorial??? I have been checking every day-oops! I am giddy with excitement--THANK YOU!

On another note, I found out that you know Melissa Neddo who I know from when she lived in Michigan (I am still here; she has moved.) I am reminded what a small world it is! I love the blogging world!

Thank you!!

You probably don't know this, but you're my own private sewing teacher (and totally free!). Thank you, thank you for this tutorial. It's just what I needed to 'get my feet wet' in quilting. My daughter loves it! I posted a pic on my blog if you'd like to see. Have a blessed day!

I did a post on making them from a charm pack in a easy way about a week ago. A friend showed me your quilt today and I just love it!
