FREE BABY QUILT PATTERNS


Sometimes baby quilt patterns for beginners can be just smaller versions of bigger quilts.  As a general rule, I tend to make baby quilts about 36″ square.  That gives you a decent size quilt that you can wrap around baby or that you can put on the floor for baby to lie on.  An easy baby quilt pattern can be made by using suitable fabric – the shops are full of beautiful fabrics aimed at babies.  When my children were small it was all pastel colours – pink for girls and powder blue for boys – but I far prefer the striking fabrics that are available these days.  It is also felt that babies respond better to strong colours, so that’s another reason for using bold, primary colours in your quilt design.

In the free baby quilt patterns that follow, I have tried to use a variety of different styles of easy quilts to give you plenty of choice.  Not only are they generally quick to make, but they also make great beginner projects because you can see the results of your work so much more quickly.  Just click on any photo below to see the pattern of your choice with full instructions.

  2. Firstly what an amazing site. I have learned so much as a beginner. I have bought fabric (different patterns 4 my 2 nieces).lea is 6 kayleigh 3. I so would love to make them both a quilt for their single beds. would you have any patterns that I could learn from and sew. thank you Maureen

    • Hi Maureen. Thanks for your comments. A single bed quilt would need to be a minimum of about 36″ wide and 60″ long, so you could look for any of the quilts that fit that size. Sorry I can’t be more specific than that, but I have quite a few patterns that would be suitable so it’s really up to personal choice as to which one or ones you would like to make. This is the link for quilt patterns that are more likely to be bed sized: http://ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/free-quilt-and-sew-patterns/free-quilt-patterns/

  3. Just love your web-site, and always anxious to see another great pattern from you. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful patterns, and your thoughts with us. I want to do a quilt, King size in yellows and blacks for my bedrooms any great ideas for a pattern. Thanks and have a great week-end. Johnnie K.

    • Hi Johnnie. My apologies for the delay in replying. I don’t have any patterns for king size quilts, but you could always use one of the other patterns that you like the look of and make more blocks to get it up to size.

    I’ve just made your beacon baby quilt for my new granddaughter Rose. I used Peter rabbit material which I fussy cut for the large squares. I have a 2 year old grandson and a now delighted at the arrival of his baby sister, born on 8th November. I hope that you are enjoying every moment with your new baby granddaughter – it’s such a special time! I love receiving your quilt patterns / tutorials.

    • Hi Pat. Your Beacon quilt sounds gorgeous – it’s amazing what an enduring quality the Beatrix Potter books have. My middle son gave a complete set of the books to my granddaughter which I thought was a brilliant idea for a gift. How lovely to have a new granddaughter – and how exciting for her brother.
