8 fat quarters
1 yard minky
1 package quilt batting (crib size)
Step 1: Iron 7 of your fat quarters (save the 8th for the binding) and put in a perfect stack like so.
Cut out four 8.5"x8.5" squares so that you have 28 squares total. Save the scraps for the binding!
Aren't they pretty?! Note: You should iron yours better than I did :)
Lay out the pattern that you want (or go random like I did) and continue to sew until you've got the entire top put together.
Here it is, 4 squares by 7 squares.
Once your batting is trimmed to the right size, lay the quilt top on top with the right side facing up. So you should have a sandwich with the batting in middle and the top and bottom with their right sides facing out.
Pin all the layers together. Then baste around the quilt 1/4" away from the edge.
Step 4: Quilt all of the layers together by stitching in the ditch between all of the squares.
Sew the strips together in a nice long train (right sides together with a 1/4" seam which you then iron open). Then iron the long strip in half with the right sides facing out.this post when I have need to be reminded about binding. I'm bad a explaining binding, so go to that site if you don't know how! :)
You're all done with your sweet and simple crib size quilt!
