brandyquilts answered:
Thanks for your question! I followed free online tutorials for the quilt top (https://www.thirtyhandmadedays.com/basic-baby-quilt-tutorial/), quilting pattern (https://www.google.com/amp/filminthefridge.com/2011/04/01/big-diamond-little-diamond-a-straight-line-quilting-pattern/amp/?source=images) and binding (https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2010/11/fast-machine-quilt-binding.html). I highly recommend all of these tutorials. This was my first quilt, and the step by step instructions made it easy. The Diary of a Quilter beginner quilting blog series was very helpful in teaching me the overall process and best practices. For this particular quilt, I selected 8 half yards from the bundle (2 focal prints, and 6 primary colors) for the top. I used the panel from the fabric bundle and a yard of one of the prints for the back. A half yard from the bundle served as my binding. Here are the measurements I used to cut my strips. I played with the stripe arrangements until I was happy with it. Quilt Size = 43 x 55.5 Binding: White with blue dots (5 - 3.5" x 44" strips) Back: Animal print and panel Front Pattern: 5" x 44" - free print 5" x 44" - free print 8" x 44" - blocked print 8" x 44" - blocked print 2.5" x 44" = S (x4) 3" x 44" = M (x4) 3.75" x 44" = L (x4) S - green check S - green dot S - yellow S - red M - red M - green dot M - orange check M - blue L - blue L - yellow L - green check L - orange check Piece: Print + 3 Stripes (random color/size)
