Tutorial for a quick and easy baby quilt top


Layer Cake

For this little quilt I chose a Layer Cake 
from Moda, line Hometown. 
I think the colors are suitable for a baby girl or a baby boy.
In fact with one layer Cake I have just enough 
fabric to sew two baby quilts.

Fabric selection

I put 4 layers together and cut them in 2 triangles.

Diagonal cut

Again I cut them in 2 parts.

Second diagonale cut

I obtain 16 triangles.

Block arrangement

I sew them 2 by 2 ...

Sewing

... in a continuous way.

I press the seam on the side.

Pressing

One seam on the right and one seam on the left.

Assembling


Continuous sewing

When all the blocks are ready, I use my iron
to open and press the seam.

Pressing

 I cut again the blocks to be exactly 23/23 cm.

Blocks 23/23 cm

Then I begin to assemble 4 blocks,
after chosing a suitable arrangement.

Row of 4 blocks
  
I sew each row of 4 blocks,
pressing all the seams the same side.
Next row, I press the seams the opposite way.

2 rows

I press open the horizontal seam.

2 ironed rows


Assembling rows

Finished top.

 I will show the ready completed quilt soon, once quilted and binded.

    1. ... de rien! La regle est en inches, mais la je m'en sers juste pour couper car elle est anti-derapante. Avec les layer cakes, pas besoin de mesurer, juste a la fin, que les blocs soient tous de la meme taille et a ce stade je me sers juste des lignes sur la planche.
