This is a fairly easy baby quilt I made using scraps. I like how the design turned out.
Total Time: 5 hours
large piece of fabric for backing
Use coordinating fabric scraps for the following steps. Cut out large squares. I did 9 inch squares for this quilt and made it 6 squares across by 8 squares down. Cut out 3 inch squares for the corners, two per large square. Lay out your design. Take a picture of the design for easy reference.
Pin smaller squares in opposite corners of larger squares. Sew diagonally from one corner to the other. Trim half of the square using scissors and about a 1/4 inch seam. Press all squares. Begin sewing the rows together, going across the width of the quilt. Then, sew each row together until quilt is complete.
Lay the pressed quilt top onto backing fabric, cut to about 2 inches wider and longer than the quilt top, with a layer of batting in between. Pin with safety pins into place. Tie yarn knots onto corners.
Fold up excess backing fabric twice to form a hem around the quilt. Pin. Sew them by machine.
