Remember those scraps and the scrap storage system? Well, here is a good use for all those little blocks!! A great scrappy baby quilt! Thanks to Wedding Dress Blue for a great tutorial!
Twinkle Baby Quilt
34-1/2″ x 34-1/2″
Time to use up some more scraps and put a twinkle into at least three sets of eyes: yours, the mama and the baby!
208 scrappy 2-1/2″ squares. As has become customary when I create baby quilts, I selected colors that coordinate with the backing fabric. There is a wide range of colors in each grouping. Don’t be too matchy-matchy. Variety keeps babies from being bored. No one wants a bored baby!
9 2-1/2″ squares for the center of the stars
72 1-1/2″ squares for the points of the stars. I used 8 in each color grouping to match the 9 2-1/2″ squares above.
72 2-1/2″ squares background fabric (white here). This is more than 1/3 yard, but less than 1/2 yard
1/4 yard for binding
1-1/8 yard for backing
1. Sort or cut from scrap 208 2-1/2″ squares.
