Baby Quilt PatternIt's easy to make a baby quilt by combining the Single Irish Chain block with pre-printed fabric panels. A four or six-inch finished quilt block is a good choice for baby quilts, and works with many of the square motifs that are printed on panels.
Use the instructions on pages 1 and 2 to construct your blocks. You'll need additional blocks, so cut your fabric strips from selvage to selvage instead of using the shorter lengths given for four blocks. Cut as many segments as you can from each longer strip set and assemble blocks. Make additional strip sets as needed.
Cut alternate blocks from pre-printed panels. Cut 4-1/2" squares to use with 4-inch finished blocks; cut 6-1/2" squares to use with 6-inch finished blocks.
Make rows by sewing your alternate blocks between Single Irish Chain blocks as shown above, alternating block types from row to row. Press the seam allowances towards the alternate blocks. Sew rows together and press.
