Two Charm Square Baby Quilts

This one is for my grandson Teddy.  Finished in time for his 1st birthday.  I had started many quilts for him, but they none suited my daughter, so was glad to get this one completed.  It has flannel baseball fabric on the back.

This one is for Ezra, new grand baby of my coworker.

Ready for binding with cool diagonal plaid in navy and white.  Backed with baby blue flannel checks.



Cutting Instructions
98 Charm Squares  (You can use a charm pack or two and pull some stash fabrics and cut into 5 inch squares)
    Lay out on point (row 1, one square; row 2, three squares; row 3, five squares; row 4, seven squares; row 5, nine squares; row 6, eleven squares; row 7, thirteen squares
    For a rectangle quilt, row 8, will also have 13 squares and then you'll decrease each row down to the next odd number (11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 1) of squares.
    For a square quilt, row 8 will start decreasing (11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 1) squares.


You'll need 26 Setting triangles
(6) 7 3/4" squares cut diagonally twice
(1) 5 1/2" square cut diagonally once

You'll need 4 Corner Square triangles  Cut one 6 1/4" square and cut diagonally twice

Lay out squares in a pleasing formation






















Remember as you sew, to make sure each section has a straight edge for assembling later.

Incredible!! Two quilts that are basically the same, but SEW different. Color placement makes all the difference, doesn't it?!

What a simple quilt for you to make and lovely snuggle blankets for the new babies. Glad to hear you got mother (or i should say daughter) approval too :) Have a good day.
