Peyton Quilt from Fat Quarter Baby Book

This is another delightful quilt pattern from the authors of Fat Quarter Baby Book. Valerie guides you through the process for making the block for this quilt.  It is simply constructed , so is great for beginners too,  Valerie also has a great idea for layering your quilt by using fusible wadding, which means you just need to iron the layers into place. And Valerie says: “Warning – this pattern can prove addictive”  Watch Now+ 

BOOK OF THE MONTH: Fat Quarter Baby from It’s Sew Emma Patterns

We love the baby quilts in Fat Quarter Baby from It’s Sew Emma patterns so much  that we have made it our Book of the Month for May. There are 20 crib quilts that are fun, fast and easy to make- 10 for the boys and 10 for the girls.

It’s cleverly written with good shopping instructions, covering fat 1/4’s as well as background, borders, backing and binding – so great if you are starting from scratch. There are also great cutting instructions. AND if you are a seasoned
sewer with stash, you can raid this too as the instructions are so clear.. Buy Now+
