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.

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.

  1. Oh, what a fun & sweet quilt to make with my AccuQuilt GO! cutter!
    Making quilts for children is so delightful. Thanks, Connie.

  2. I so very much admire this sweet baby quilt. It is pulling at me to make and I am anxious to get started.. I do not have the AccuQuilt Die Cutter so was excited to see you included directions for the quilt. I have gone over the information several times and simply cannot find a link for the applique templates. Can you please help me? So sorry to impose on your time but so anxious to make this. Thank you in advance for this lovely project and your time as well as assistance.

      1. Dear Connie,
        Thank you for the quick response to my request for help. I have been on your newsletter list for some time. I tried to sign up again just to be sure I wasn’t receiving something else that was not the newsletter and got a message that I was already on the newsletter mailing list. I still cannot find a way to get the PDF and templates of the tutorial. I am not computer savvy and feel I must not understand what I need to do.. Thanks again for any help and please forgive the annoyance.

  3. Hello Connie; This is such a sweet lovely Baby Quilt that you have made! I adore how you created the big blocks Bow Tie Die you were able to create these cute adorable different blocks! Plus, adding these cute flowers in the other blocks was a great choice to add that extra bit of softness. Another spectacular accomplishment in your pattern creating! It is definitely on my to do list. Thank you also for adding the additional measurements and printable pieces for those of us who do not have the dies needed or any dies at all! It truly is a valuable treasure for us!!!! I also wanted to ask you if you entered the AccuQuilt block design contest this year? I was looking for something and saw the information, I went and looked and voted but did not see your name anywhere, but could have also missed it. So am just very curious. Thank you again for sharing another great pattern!! Have a fantastic day!

  4. Great quilt that will certainly please. I can see a purpose for all the 4patch left over blocks that I have been saving and all the scraps that I have. Thank you for sharing.
