Making A Baby Quilt – Step 2
I tend to plan many quilts as I go along instead of at the beginning, which is what I’m doing with this one.
So far, I’ve decided that this will be a crib quilt size – 36 x 50 inches – and that I will alternate appliquéd blocks with either blocks of a solid fabric or a traditional block pattern or patterns. It will have rows of 3 blocks across and 5 down – 15 blocks in all.
Since I want to make the appliquéd blocks first, I was forced to narrow my pattern choices from 18 down to 8. The elimination process was not easy and I hemmed and hawed over them for quite some time! I have finally chosen these blocks from Kay’s book: Moon & Stars, Sunflowers, Love, Cat, Scottie, Heart and Buds, Tulip Trio, and Chicken.
Now comes the fun of choosing fabrics from my scraps and stash and making the blocks! Although I cannot show the block patterns here, I will be able to show you the blocks as I finish them. Those of you who have Kay’s Easy Appliqué Blocks, and are following along, can look them up.
