I am so excited to share with you my Hugs and Kisses Baby Quilt tutorial which is part of my donation quilt drive for National Foster Care Month in May 2022, you can find out more details here.
We have finished our donation quilt drive for this year, please make sure you sign up for my emails so you don’t miss out on our next donation quilt drive in May 2023. But of course Comfort Cases will gratefully accept handmade quilts any time of the year.
The Hugs and Kisses Baby Quilt is super quick and easy to make and perfect to donate – hint hint! It is quick to make because the pattern is super simple, plus we will be doing the Self Binding Technique, where we do the backing and binding for the quilt in one go.
This tutorial is free and everything you need to know to make the Hugs & Kisses Baby Quilt is listed here, including the link to my free YouTube tutorial.
A PDF pattern with full printable instructions is available to purchase on my Etsy Store at a nominal fee which helps supports my free tutorials.
The cute fabric that I will use for the Hugs and Kisses Baby Quilt was generously donated by Art Gallery Fabrics for National Foster Care Month, it is called Tails & Threads by Patty Basemi – thank you Art Gallery Fabrics!
The quilt will measure approximately: 34″ x34″
TO MAKE THE HUGS AND KISSES BABY QUILT YOU WILL NEED
4 x Fat Quarters
1¼ yard of fabric for backing
36” x 36” piece of batting
With EACH of the Fat Quarters cut:
(4) x 18″ x 18”
Note: Fat Quarters should be 18″ x 21″ but some fall short, in this case, cut them all the smallest size you have i.e. 17½” x 17½”
Please watch my video for full instructions on how to make the Hugs & Kisses Baby Quilt:
