Pink Spring Rain Baby Quilts

I challenged myself on Monday to modify the pattern I created for “Blue Spring Rain” into a baby size quilt. It turns out that with 7 fat quarters of the inset fabrics (rain), I can make 2 baby quilt tops and have enough left over to bind them. Sweet! It also takes about 2.5 yards of the background fabric to create the 2 quilt tops. To complete, I need 1.5 yards of a backing fabric for each quilt. Not too shabby! I am thinking the next challenge for myself will be to turn this into a tutorial. I would love to know if anyone would be interested in this as a pattern / tutorial. 🙂

So, without further ado, here are the 2 quilt tops that I just completed:

The quilt tops finish out to 36.5″ by 48.5″. After quilting and a wash, I am estimating that they will finish out at 34″ by 46″.

I played around with the width of the stripes for these quilt tops, which is something that I regretted not doing on Blue Spring Rain. I really like the motion in the quilts, and I am excited to quilt and bind these later in the week.

  1. I absolutely love this one. It’s such a simple but beautiful pattern. Of course I prefer the blue (I just like that color!), but this pink is adorable on a baby quilt. A couple of lucky little girls will be getting these, I’m sure!

    1. Thanks! I am definitely partial to the blue and white, too. I have enough background (white) fabric to make another quilt top, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be making a blue and white baby quilt in the very near future with this pattern… 🙂

    I love your pattern! This design would be fun in multi-color too.

    1. Thank you. I agree that this pattern would look good with lots of different variations!

  3. Renee says:

    These are very cute! Are you planning to quilt them the same as the first?

  4. I think I might do one that way and the other with all over hearts. We’ll see what strikes me once I get them pin basted!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
