Baby Quilt Pattern with Giveaway

By June 7, 2021Blog, patterns

Isn’t a baby quilt so fun to make and give? They are usually quick and easy. Plus if you let the new parents know you want it used. (Sometimes new moms worry about ruining the beautiful quilt you’ve created for their sweet baby.) Putting that momma’s mind at ease ensures your quilt is used and loved. Isn’t that why you made the quilt in the first place? Nothing is sweeter than a well loved baby quilt.

Being a mother of three boys I know how hard it can be to find good baby boy items. With that in mind I created Starling. It features the fabric line Animal Crackers by Sweetwater. You can find it and other great fabrics at the Fat Quarter Shop. I started with a large star. Framed it. Then set it on point. Finished it off with radiating triangles. Switching up the fabrics you could easily make it for a girl.

Either way it’s a great quilt for that new bundle of joy. The pattern can be found in the July/August issue of Love of Quilting. In fact, I’ve got a free copy for one lucky reader. To be entered to win just leave a comment below telling me if and how many baby quilts you made this year. Good luck! I’ll pick a winner Friday.

    I can’t resist making a quilt for a new baby! I have one all a quilted and ready for binding – to be gifted to a friend for her first grandchild.

    This is a beautiful design for a baby quilt and can so easily be made for either boy or girl or even neutral for those unannounced genders!
    Last year, I made 4 baby quilts, but this year I haven’t made any so far. There’s still time!

  • Melody Anne Martin says:

    I’ve made nine baby quilts so far this year. But seven of them were 12 inch square quilts for micro preemies at a local NICU.

  • Missy Reynolds says:

    What a darling pattern!!! I’ve made six baby quilts so far this year. They are my absolute favorite to make. I like them on the larger size so the child can use them well for a long time!. When I don’t have a specific baby to give them to, I donate them to the Peds ICU where I used to work. Most people understand what a Neonatal ICU is and are very generous in donating to them but don’t realize there is an intensive care unit for kids of all ages.

  • Becky Turner says:

    I sew with a 6 to 8 ladies who make quilts for local charities. We manage to make and donate over 120 quilts a year from donated fabric. About half of them are baby or children quilts. Right now my baby quilts number about 8 for the year.

    Would love another pattern to add to the offerings.

  • Paula Stewart says:

    I have made two baby quilts this year, I quilted one myself on my domestic machine, and the other one I sent out to be quilted. Your pattern is beautiful!

    • Barbara Jackson says:

      I haven’t sewed any quilts sence may, 2019. We were flooded and lost our house. We rebuilt the house and have sold it. But news of my daughter having a baby girl in December has got me looking for a pattern this one would be so cute.

    Last year I made 20 baby quilts for the NICU in the children’s hospital where my daughter works as a pharmacist. Plus I made two more for gifts for a set of twins (boy and girl). This year my goal is to make 12 quilts for the hospital. Last year it was “’20 in 2020” and due to the lockdowns I had plenty of time to sew (even though I’m retired). Thanks for sharing.
