Quilt, Baby!

Two of the gals I work with are having babies in the near future. It's OK, they don't read my blog...I doubt they even know I have a blog. So we're safe. I've decided to make baby quilts for them both. I finished the top of one, it's in the previous post. For that one, I just sort of made things up as I went along and kept it very simple. But I want to branch out a bit on this next one.

My original plan was to make the Stacked Coins baby quilt at the Moda Bakeshop. It's fairly straightforward and very cute, but I'm not certain it's what I want to do. I've been perusing for baby quilt tutorials and thought I'd share with you, dear (4) readers, my favorites.

For those of us who are beginners, here is a simple Charm Pack baby quilt at Diary of a Quilter.

For the not so beginner, the Polka Dot baby quilt at and other silly things is absolutely swoon-worthy! I found another baby circle quilt at Cluck Cluck Sew.

Piece N Quilt's Tic Tac Baby Quilt is soooo fun! I love the unexpected color choice! She also has a tutorial for a Magic Baby Quilt that incorporates ric-rac!

I am 100% in love with the Sparks Baby Quilt at Handmade by Alissa!

Another wonky(ish)block quilt(in one of my favorite color combos) is elia's quilt, which appears to be a quick and easy one, is over at at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Here's a sweet Baby Four Patch pattern. The Fat Quarter Shop has several more quilt patterns(non-baby) free for the taking.

I've never been that interested in making a rag quilt, but this baby version makes me want to give it a whirl!

I even found a tute for a Felted Sweater baby quilt for those of you who are so inclined.

Moda Bakeshop's Baby Pinwheel may just be the one I end up making. I looove pinwheels and I've never tried prairie points, so it's definitely at the top of my list. ...and I still have plenty charms & white fabric left over from that previous baby quilt top to make this one.

Got a link to a sweet baby quilt tute or (freebie) pattern...would love for you to share those here!
