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.
