Binding: Cut binding either 1.5" wide or 2" wide (your preference), and long enough to go all the way around your quilt - about 120 inches for the smaller size and 180 inches for the larger size (you may piece strips).

Batting: You will need a 28.5" x 28.5" piece of batting (or 42.5" x 42.5" if you are making the larger size).
NOTE: Use our Insul-Bright insulation for batting to create an extra warm quilt!

Quilt Backing: 28.5" x 28.5" piece of fabric for the quilt back (or 42.5" x 42.5" if you are making the larger size). Refer to Assemble And Bind A Quilt for instructions on binding, layering and backing.

Cutting Instructions

PRE-WASH AND DRY YOUR FABRIC before beginning.

Small Quilt - Baby Blanket Size (28.5" x 28.5")


Cut strips of fabric 4.5" x w.o.f. (width of fabric)

For color one, cut three strips, each 4.5" x 42-45" (your width of fabric)

For colors two and three, cut two strips of fabric 4.5" x w.o.f.

Cut strips into 4.5" squares. For color one, you will need a total of 25 squares. For colors two and three you will need a total of 12 squares of each color.

Larger Quilt - Lap Size (42.5" x 42.5")


Cut strips of fabric 6.5" x w.o.f. (width of fabric)

For color one, cut four strips, each 6.5" x 42-45" (your width of fabric), plus one more square that measures 6.5" x 6.5"

For colors two and three, cut two strips of fabric 6.5" x w.o.f.

Cut strips into 6.5" squares. For color one, you will need a total of 25 squares. For colors two and three you will need a total of 12 squares of each color.

Sewing Instructions

Using 1/4" seam allowances, sew the squares together as shown in the photo at the top of the page. It is easiest to assemble the squares into one row at a time. You can create horizontal or vertical rows. After your rows are created, sew the rows together. TIP: Iron all squares before sewing them into rows. Iron the rows before sewing them together. It works best to press the seams in opposite directions. In other words, if row one has seams pressed to the left, press the seams of row two to the right. That way, when you sew the rows together, it is easier to match corners more precisely.

Refer to General Quilting Instructions and Assemble And Bind A Quilt for instructions on finishing your quilt.

Quilting Instructions

You can now stitch the three layers together, either by tying with yarns or embroidery floss, hand quilting or machine quilting. If this is to be a baby quilt, I would not recommend tying (since the yarn can come loose, creating a safety hazard).
