I am not a quilter, but I love quilts!  I made this super easy baby quilt for my future nephew in under a day. 


It was pretty simple to construct...2 pieces of fabric, batting and a walking foot.  Most of the time was spent attaching the binding since I finished it by hand! 


I was so happy with the results that I created a tutorial for it.   If interested, you can find it here.  http://sewplicity.com/2014/03/half-day-blockless-baby-quilt/

Enjoy!

Thanks for making this look so simple! I am planning to put together a stash of baby gifts for the never-ending baby showers at work, and I think these little quilts would be a big hit. I fear the hand sewing, but if I do a bit at a time, I'm sure I can manage. And, while I'd be tempted to cheat and use purchased bias binding, it doesn't come in fun fabrics Smiley Somewhere, I have a tutorial for making continuous bias binding, and I think I'll need to play around with it soon.

Thanks for sharing this!

Don't fear the hand-sewing....it's really not too bad.  Do it while watching TV - you'll be surprised how quickly it goes!  Good luck!

I think these would make great gifts!  Just pick two lovely fabrics and go to town....

Love the bright yellow with the greys!

I rarely bind by hand any more since I found this tutorial...and it was super easy!!  Try it to make things go even faster!

I am a quilter, and never thought of this. Sad  Nice for charity projects or the never ending gift giving occasions.  I don't always want to invest months on a project for a complete stranger or so for kids to just drag around.
Great idea!  Grin
