I love making baby quilts. This one takes a little more time to make because you need to cut and sew the the quilt top together instead of using 1 piece of fabric as the front. It's still so simple though! The appliqued letter makes the quilt extra special and adds a personal touch. You could also applique a butterfly or owl instead of the letter if the baby's name is still undecided.
Here are some great tips from Fabric.com's blog for working with minky fabric.
*All seam allowances are 1/4"
You will need:
30 6"x6" fabric squares
4 strips of white fabric for trim
(2) -2 1/2" x 32 1/2"
(2) -2 1/2" x 311 yard minky fabric
card stock (to print letter on)
typical sewing supplies
Lay out your squares randomly in 6 rows of 5. Arrange them until your happy with the placement.
With the front of the quilt up, press the edges of the quilt. Top stitch around the quilt and you're done!
**You may opt to tack the layers in a few places to keep the layers from shifting.**
I hope little Miss Lyddie Ann likes it too!
