1 yard fabric for front of quilt
1 yard fabric for back of quilt
piece of batting 40" x 45"
4 different pieces of fabric scraps approx. 5" x 5"
4 pieces of double-sided fusible web (I prefer Heat-n-bond or Steam-a-Seam 2) - approx. 5" x 5"
Binding fabric - 10" x width of fabric
Take your 4 pieces of fabric scraps and iron the fusible webbing to the wrong side of each piece.
Place your fabrics wrong side up (paper side up) on your Alpha Baby die. You will want to put 2 pieces over the "B" and one piece each on the "A" and "Y" so you can spell "BABY" with your pieces.
Run the fabric through your Go! Baby Fabric Cutter.
Put your pieces to the side until after you are done quilting.
Take your (2) one yard pieces of fabric and iron well. Trim off the selvedge edges from each side. You will be making a whole cloth quilt.
Take your basted quilt and quilt according to your preference. I chose to do a swirly pattern across the entire quilt.
Trim off the extra batting from each side.
Take your letters and arrange them on the quilt. You can place them anywhere you want to. I placed mine in the lower righthand corner.
Remove the paper backing and iron each letter onto the quilt. Using a zig zag stitch, straight stitch, or blanket stitch, sew around each letter.
* I chose to use a light thread but you can always use a contrasting thread if you want the letters to stand out more.
Take your 10" piece of fabric and cut four (4) 2.5" strips. Sew them together to form one long strip for your binding. Attach your binding to your quilt.
You can chose to machine-stitch or hand-sew your binding...this tutorial is excellent.
And you are done - a cute baby quilt that is quick, easy and a great present!
