Baby Clothes Quilt

A friend of mine brought me a bag of baby clothes and asked if I would make a quilt from them.  She decided that she just wanted a basic squares patchwork.  I was a little skeptical of how it would turn out but it looks precious and she loves it.  There are onesies, dresses, bibs and blankets in this quilt.

We added some white sashing strips in between rows so that it would not stretch or grow after it's loved on for a while.  We also backed most of the pieces with fusible interfacing.

We tried to get as much of the textures as we could.  You can see some ruffles and pockets on some of the squares.  Overall, a fun and absolutely adorable quilt.  I like when people push me on my thinking.


  1. Adorable! The ruffles and the monogram are my favorite squares. What size did you cut the squares?

  2. I cut the squares 5 inches. Thanks for asking.

  3. Cute! Cutting up the clothes would be a pain, but some of them are so cute, it's a great idea!
