Monogrammed Baby Quilt

I pinned this FOREVER ago, in hopes a friend would have another baby soon :o) My wish came true two weeks ago when one of my best friends delivered sweet Adelyn Joy.
The original in the pin above was made by Melissa at the Pokadot Chair.
Then these two quilts were featured at the 
Moda Bake Shop where I found them.
I didn’t use the quilt squares, like Melissa so here is the break down of the fabric I bought:

1 pre-quilted yard for the off-white center
1/3 of a yard for each of the 4 patterns you use on the border
1 yard of batting

Plus….add to 3 out of the 4 patterns:
1/4 an extra yard for the pattern you want to cut the name out of
1/2 an extra yard for the binding pattern
1 extra yard of the fabric for the backing.

I followed her tutorial regarding the cutting of the border pattern. 14 pieces each 5 x 10.

Then I laid out the pattern to make sure I didn’t end up with two matching prints beside each other.

Next I sewed four 5″ x 10″ pieces together for the long edge of the border.
Repeat for the opposite side, and press your seams.

Then sew three 5″ x 10″ pieces together for the short edge.
Repeat for the opposite side and press your seams.

I went in a different direction regarding the fabric for the center section of my quilt. This fabric was already quilted and provided an awesome diamond pattern and the quilted look without actually having to do much “quilting.” I cut the center almost square at 28 3/4″ x 28 1/2″.

Attach the 3 pieced borders first to the sides measuring 28 1/2″, next add on the 4 pieced borders.

For the monogram I used my Silhouette and their new fabric interfacing to cut out ADELYN.

And I ironed the letters to the bottom right of the white block.

Finally, I sandwiched the quilt with batting and a backing piece measuring 30″ x 30″.

I tied the quilt together in the corners between the middle and the border by hand. Then binded.

Thanks to The Polkadot Chair, Moda Bake Shop, and Pinterest for the INSPIRATION.
