The Cutest Baby-Sized Quilts You'll Ever See (Sewing Tutorials by Homemade Emily Jane)

Everyone knows babies and quilts go together about as well as, well, babies and quilts! 

And while we regularly feature quilts here on the Sewciety Blog, this week we're excited to add a fun new spin by showcasing not just one, but TWO super cute baby-sized quilts.

Our friend Emily Jane (you know her as Homemade Emily Jane) is a quilt pattern designer who comes up with some of the most creative designs we've seen! 

Here, in her own words, she shares her insight on two of her favorite baby-sized quilts that incorporate Shannon Fabrics Cuddle® minky plush fabrics into the oh-so-cozy designs.

Baby-Sized Triangular Quilt

The Triangular Quilt Pattern is reminiscent of triangles falling like confetti.

I chose to make this version as a baby boy quilt using a handful of artisan cottons by Windham Fabrics. The texture of the artisan cottons is so soft and I knew I needed to pick a backing that would make this the most cuddly and cozy quilt for a lucky baby boy!

The backing I chose to use is Shannon Fabrics Cuddle® in Dark Lime. I quilted it with wavy lines spaced 1.5” apart. I like how the wavy lines contrast the sharp geometry of the triangles.

String Quilt Block Using AccuQuilt

This pattern is actually a free tutorial! The baby quilt uses 12 String quilt blocks and 13 Sawtooth Star quilt blocks.

I made my variation of a string quilt block using my AccuQuilt cutting machine and pulled all the fabrics from my scrap stash! It can totally be made with Fat Quarters or other pre-cuts too which makes it super versatile and fun.

This combination of "blue-ish" greens and "coral-y" pinks is one of my summer favorites and perfect for energetic and fun nursery decor!

I backed this baby quilt with Shannon Fabrics Cuddle® Dimple in Belize and quilted it with 1”-apart straight line matchstick quilting.
