If you are looking for a fast and easy baby quilt to make, then the Stacks quilt will be perfect for you!
I decided that Mr. Mickey needed a quilt of his own, he looks pretty happy on it, doesn’t he!
Stacks Doggie Quilt
40″ x 40″
Doggie quilt or baby quilt, this would make a cute quilt for either a baby or a dog.
I had a bundle of fat quarters that had aged for a couple of years and I thought this would be a great time to use them up.
I had to add four more fabrics from my stash so I could make the quilt with nine different fat quarters.
The first thing I had to do was iron the fat quarters and then lay them on top of each other. If you use a large rotary cutter with a new blade you should be able to cut through all nine layers at once.
I used my Stacks quilt pattern and followed the directions in the pattern to cut up the fat quarters. I don’t remember where I got the fabrics from but isn’t this cute with all of the kitchen items on it!
My original Stacks quilt was made for Island Batik when we lived down by the river…..too many moves!
Decided to make square quilt blocks
The quilt blocks in the Stacks pattern are rectangular but for some reason, I decided to trim the blocks to squares. Looking at this photo makes me think I was experimenting or something.
If you make the baby quilt following the pattern, your quilt will be 47″ x 56″.
I actually cut out and pieced this quilt in April 2020 and have no idea why I never finished it. It may have been because I made a Stacks table runner.
Here are the quilt blocks sewn into rows and laid out on the floor. I actually had the whole quilt top pieced. I must have jumped to the next quilt project and forgotten it.
Last week while cleaning my quilt studio, I came across a pile of quilt tops and decided to finish this one.
Polar Fleece as batting
I had a piece of polar fleece that I decided to use as batting. I wasn’t sure how it would work but I knew Mr. Mickey wouldn’t care. It was very easy to quilt through.
Normally I wouldn’t recommend using this as batting. I used it for a table runner and did straight line stitching on it. The table runner didn’t lay straight but I finished it anyway thinking maybe it would be better after getting washed. Of course that didn’t work, in fact, it looked worse.
At some point, that table runner will become a tote bag.
Mr. Mickey is getting pretty good at posing! He is still coughing a lot and tires easily but he is a sweet little cuddle bug. Over the weekend we had lots of family staying with us and he loved seeing everyone.
So far he hasn’t been using the doggie quilt, he prefers his two soft pillows. In case you are wondering that is my Simple Flying Geese pillow.
Are you done taking pictures yet??
