When I picked up the crib sheets to make the Doggie Baby quilt on commission, I also could not resist purchasing two other really cute crib sheets with a lovely gray and white / gray yellow and white animal theme. Knowing that I can make these crib sheet baby quilts in 2 hours and have a low cost item to add to my Etsy store, I decided to get the fitted crib sheets and make another quilt to add as an Etsy listing whenever I had a free afternoon.
I really like how the black, gray, yellow, and white striped print frames out the quilt and pulls out the touches of yellow from the “front” side of the quilt.
The 50wt Aurifil 2021 (natural white) quilting blends right in and it is fun and satisfying to be able to make a 42-inch by 43.5-inch quilt in such short order.
I know these are not the most imaginative quilts ever made, but having an item on hand that I can gift quickly or potentially sell to someone looking for an affordable baby quilt option is satisfying.
Do you have any quick make items like these fitted crib sheet quilts that you like to make to feel productive?
