Best Baby Quilt Pattern Ever!

This baby quilt pattern is the perfect quick project!

The pattern comes in this little booklet, 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", put out by Modern Quilt Studio.

There are 8 modern quilt patterns in this little booklet. "Simple Gifts" is the name of this baby quilt, on page 18.

I made this one first--here it is with binding stitched on the front.

I bought this adorable woodland animals fabric on our recent state shop hop. 

The quilting is called "Spring Thing".

The pattern calls for four fat quarters, and as one of my co-workers at Quilt Cove said, "Who doesn't have four fat quarters?!"

This second quilt was designed around the floral Kaffee Fassett fat quarter, which was a freebie from a local quilt shop. The backing is an origami crane fabric from Japan.

I quilted "Baptist Swirl" on this one. 

Besides the four fat quarters, it calls for a 1/2" strip between the two sections, binding and backing, fabric most of us can pull from stash. 

Finished size is 31" X 40".

There will be many more of these quick baby quilts in my future. I plan on donating them to Jack's Basket, an organization whose mission is to celebrate babies born with Down Syndrome.

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy


  1. These are great quilts. Awesome and simple

  2. What a fun pattern! I love the green/brown fabric combo. Such simple quilts to make, they will be perfect for Jack's Basket!

  3. What a great way to use some of my big novelty prints! Sometimes I hate to cut up the cute animals or scenes. Your little quilts are just darling, and I love that you are donating them to a Downs charity. Great job!!

    You might consider linking to Kat's "Sew Some Love" link up. It's for any charity quilts you're working on. Here's last week's link, and I think she'll do another one today or tomorrow:

  4. I love both of these quilts, the simpler the better and who doesn't have four fat quarters. They're perfect for donating and for gifts. Thanks for sharing! BTW, love the quilting, especially the Baptist Swirl.

  5. Great and lovely quilts for a lovely cause! You're so kind to donate your time like that.

  6. Hi Nancy,
