Monogrammed Baby Quilt
Then these two quilts were featured at the
I didn’t use the quilt squares, like Melissa so here is the break down of the fabric I bought:
I followed her tutorial regarding the cutting of the border pattern. 14 pieces each 5 x 10.
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.
