Baby Quilt with Abbie's Garden Fabric Collection
Updated: Jul 20, 2020
I wanted to come up with a super fast and cute way to use the new fabric we got in the shop. This came together so quickly. I used 1 charm pack of 5" squares and 1 yard of the main pink fabric in the collection that has the images of Abbie. I did some fussy cutting to turn the pain pink fabric into 5" squares to match up with the charm pack.
Once I had all my Abbie images cut up, I laid them out on the floor and came out with my layout. Then it was as easy as sewing each row together. You will have some extra squares so you can be a little picky about which ones you use.
Once the rows were together I sewed each row to another row.
Once the rows were all paired up I sewed the pairs together. And finally I sewed the 2 sets of 4 rows together. This completed the 5" square section and if you didn't mind a smaller quilt and need a fast project you could stop right there if you wanted to! If you stopped here the quilt would be 36" x 36".
I added 1 border. I cut the border fabric into (4) 2 inch strips for a 1.5 inch finished border. And then I was done with the quilt top! I whipped mine together in an afternoon while my husband was out with the kids.
The fabric used was:
1 Charm pack of (42) 5" squares (you will only use 32).
1 yard of Main Pink fabric
1/4 yard of the Bouquet Charcoal fabric
1/2 yard for binding
1.5 yards for the backing
The fabric is all from the Abbie's Garden Collection from Sue Daley Designs with Gabrielle Neil for Riley Blake Designs. It ends up being about 40" x 40". I used a 1.5 yard cut of fabric for the backing and found this was enough to get it onto my longarm. I put the selvages on the sides and used the length to load the top and bottom. I still had enough extra that I ended up folding over the backing and using it as my binding.
Hopefully you guys enjoy this quick baby quilt!
