One Hour Breakdown:
10 Min- Cut, Pin and Baste
10 Min- Pillowcase bind
40 Min- Topstitch + Quilt
-2 yards Hexagon Quilt Cloth
-2 yards backing fabric
Finished Quilt Size:
-44″ by 52″
-You can buy batting in different forms and sizes. We like 100% cotton needle felted batting. It is smooth, has a natural color, and is 100% cotton!
-You can purchase a “crib size” package of batting. We prefer to buy the Queen size, which will make 4 of these baby quilts. If you plan on stocking your baby gift pile, the Queen size is a better deal economically.
-To save money on backing fabric, use a flat sheet! We found this backing material in a sheet set at Target.
-Cut quilt top fabric to 60″ and trim the edges. 2 yards will be 72″ so it’s just a small piece you’ll be cutting off. Then cut the backing fabric and batting to match.
-Spray baste the batting fabric to the quilt top fabric and smooth down with your fingers.
-Now put the quilt backing fabric RIGHT SIDES DOWN on the quilt top (with the batting on the back). You’ll have a little sandwich that looks like this:
Batting, Quilt Top, Quilt Backing. The quilt top and quilt backing will have the right sides together. Leave a 4-6″ opening to turn. Clip corners.
-Now turn the fabric right sides out and push corners out. Topstitch all the way around at 1/4″, which will close the opening you left.
You can choose to quilt your quilt with any pattern you want. We quilted a hexagon inside of each hexagon 1/4″ from the edges of each hexagon. You can see the pattern a little better on the back:
And you’re done!
