How to Make a Baby Quilt in 20 Minutes or Less

I have you intrigued, don’t I? 😊

First of all, you have to have your pieces cut ahead of time.

And from there, the entire quilt top is pieced in 5 to 20 minute increments. Okay, so you can’t make a whole quilt in 20 minutes, but you can do it in little bits of time and it adds up!

First, add a sashing piece to each square of a charm pack. This should take 15-20 minutes at most.

When you have another 5 minutes, press these parts.

You can add cornerstones to sashing strips in about 10 minutes.

Five for pressing.

Five to ten minutes for layout.

I have loads of housework today so this is the perfect project to fit in between chores. I’ll post an update soon.

Have a great day!

  2. Great idea, having a project ready to be worked on when you can sneak in a few moments! This will be fun to see as you go along!

    Fun! I like the Fabrics, too. I had to stare at the photo to fire out that was the iron–looks like a sculpture.

  4. That’s awesome. Projects don’t seen so daunting when you break them down into manageable pieces.

    What brand of iron are you using? Curious minds want to know.
