This balloon baby quilt is sweet, old fashioned and just right. It starts with a modern vintage cream print and adds 2 big balloons. The pattern is uncluttered and modest and designed to never go out of style.
Old Fashioned Fun baby quilt is a wholecloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique balloons are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions. The appliques are full size. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis.
1 yard (.91m) vintage look fabric for front of quilt (I used Moda fabrics Mind Your P’s and Q’s)
1 yard (.91m) solid chocolate brown cotton or brushed cotton (flannel) fabric for the back
1 piece 42 x 36 inches (106 x89 cm) batting that allows for up to 10 inches of open space ( I used Warm and Natural cotton batting) for the inside layer
2 fat quarters (18 x 21 inch ( 45 x 53 cm)) cotton or flannel, one in red, one in blue for the balloons.
