Default Baby Quilt Pattern

My daughter is expecting my first grandchild and Iím looking for a not-too-difficult baby quilt pattern. Any ideas?

One of my favourites is ‘Warm Wishes’ - If you google ‘Warm Wishes quilt pattern’ you’ll get lots of suggestions.

An easy quilt can be made from a charm pack or two of cute coordinated fabrics. Just sew them together randomly in rows, then join the rows. If you only have one charm pack add a border to increase the size.

This is another charm pack idea -


I have made it a couple of times - it is quick and easy to do.

Any pattern can make a baby quilt just as any pattern can make a quilt for a man--depends a lot on your fabric choices. Many years ago the Gingham Goose patterns were popular and I see those are still available online. I've made a couple of those and they are really cute--not too difficult. I especially like the one that is a teddy bear peeking out from under the covers. My mother made the train one for my son when he was a toddler and she had started the one for Sunbonnet Sue and the farm one with horses.
You can make some nice receiving blankets using flannel and the self-binding receiving blanket method that I believe is available as a free pattern online. Jenny Doan does a tutorial for that one if you are wanting quick/easy and lightweight.

The sky's the limit on possibilities for baby quilts. Congratulations on your anticipated wee one!

Default Baby Quilt Pattern

I have made 3 baby quilts. Two of those were Yellow Brick Road pattern; I was using fabric representing University of Michigan and Detroit teams. The last one was for my soon to be great grandson, using my late husband's shirts. The pattern was Connecting Corners from Missouri Star Quilt. Here are the pictures of the Yellow Brick Road quilts. I couldn't get the Connecting Corners to upload. Both patterns are very easy. I hope this helps.

Just about any block can be changed just by fabric to become a baby quilt. I would start by looking through the various quilt blocks available via this site: http://www.quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html . You can sort them by difficulty level. There are so many blocks and instructions that are easy to follow it may be hard to choose. The easiest block that I have used is the Rail Fence block. Use bright baby colors to make your blocks. Your daughter will appreciate all of your efforts.

Also Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan! I hope you just jump right in and join the fun. As you can see already we are here to help in any way possible. Your input is valuable. Again Welcome to the QB.

Congrats, how exciting! I agree with the above comments in that a lot of it can be the fabric that you choose that makes it a baby quilt. Depending on how easy you're wanting there are also a lot of adorable panels out there that make for a quick quilt but not much or any work on your end. That being said here are some links to some cute or easy patterns.
