Quick and Easy Baby Quilt ~ Part 1

I picked up this little bundle for a whole dollar at Walmart a while back. I hardly ever buy fabric there, but, a dollar!

I challenged myself to come up with a plan for a baby quilt. I added fat quarters from these two fabrics from my stash.

I used these two dies.

I started by cutting three inch strips from two of the fat quarters and sewing them into pairs.

Then I used my 3 1/2 inch strip die to subcut them.

I’m often asked about fabric waste with die cutting. This is the waste I had from these two fat quarters.

The pieces at the bottom left are saved scraps, the strings above are all that went into the trash.

Next I sewed these into strips.

Come back Wednesday for part 2.

Have a great day!

    Oh rats… I was looking for where you are going with this one! I take it you have a studio cutter? It’s so nice to see folks putting their Accuquilt cutters and dies to use!
