How would you like to make a cute applique flowers baby quilt? This baby quilt is the perfect gift for a new baby and takes no time at all to make. It would also make a perfect baby shower gift.
Today I am sharing a precious little applique baby quilt designed with the new AccuQuilt GO! 12″ Qube Companion Corners set and the AccuQuilt GO! Flower Bunch applique die.
If you don’t have the AccuQuilt die cutter and dies you will still be able to make this following my tutorial and free flower applique templates – keep reading.
The new 12″ Qube Companion Corners set makes it fast and easy to create a quilt project and a month or two ago I shared the tutorial for this on Accuquilt’s blog. Let’s get started on this applique baby quilt.
GO! Fabric Cutter:
GO! Cutting Dies:
- GO! 12″ Qube Set (55778)
- GO! 12″ Qube Companion Corners Set (55787)
- GO! Flower Bunch (55332)
- GO! 2 1/2″ Strip Cutter (55017)
- Layer cake, fat quarters or scraps of prints
- 1-yard white fabric
- 1/2 yard Heat n Bond Lite
- 1 1/2 yard fabric for backing and binding
Cut two 7″ WOF strips – sub-cut 10 – 6 1/2″ squares using die (55000) for the applique blocks.
Cut two 5½” WOF strips – sub-cut 40 HSTs using the GO! Companions Corners 1 1/2″ finished HSTs (55818) die.
Cut 2 each of the corner pieces in 20 different prints. (the fabrics I used were 5″ x 10″ rectangles from a layer cake) using the Go! Qube Companion Bowtie die (55772).
Cut 10 sets of a flower, circle center and two leaves in assorted prints using the Flower Bunch die (55332).
Apply Heat n Bond Lite to the back of your scraps following the directions on the package before running the fabric through your AccuQuilt GO! cutter. I used a blanket stitch to applique the flowers.
Sew using a 1/4″ seam allowance throughout.
Sew a half square triangle to each of the Bowtie corners.
Layout your corner pieces as shown below. Use two different prints for each block.
Your blocks will measure 6 1/2″ unfinished.
Sew your blocks together.
I like to sew 4 blocks together for a larger block and then sew 2 of them together but you can also sew rows of 4 blocks together for your baby quilt.
I forgot to take a picture of my appliqued floral baby quilt before I quilted it.
As I mentioned, you can look at the photo to see that there are 2 of the appliqued floral blocks and 2 of the pieced corner blocks in each row. There are 5 rows in my 24″ x 30″ quilt.
Add your batting and backing and quilt as desired. Use the 2 1/2″ strip cutter die to cut your binding.
I hope you have enjoyed the Applique Play Baby Quilt and you could easily make this into any size quilt you would like just by adding more blocks.
If you would like to make the Applique Flowers Baby Quilt and don’t have the AccuQuilt dies follow these directions and also download the free templates.
