This bundle of fat quarters arrived this month in my subscription from Stacked Fabric Company. I instantly went all squealy and excited when I opened the package, because they’re so cute! I decided to use these 4 fat quarters to make a simple DIY patchwork baby blanket for my nephew for Christmas. His bedroom is kind of an animal meets lumberjack theme, so I figure these tribal prints will fit right in! I’ve seen him bury his face into fuzzy blankets, so I think the soft minky fabric I used on the back will be a hit. 🙂
Start to finish, this DIY baby blanket took me about 2 hours. It’s nice to be able to finish a project in one sitting! That’s practically unheard of among crafters who typically have about 84 unfinished projects lying around at any one time!
A word on my fabric subscription. It’s like crack for crafters, I’m totally addicted! Every month I get 4 coordinating fat quarter quilting cottons. It’s a mystery bundle so I never know what’s coming, which is literally half the fun. It’s the absolute best mail! Stacked Fabric Company is Canadian owned and operated by the sweetest lady. (Who is not compensating me for singing her praises by the way, I just reallllly love this company!)
Ok, carrying on.
There really isn’t much to this DIY patchwork baby blanket, I kept it super simple. So the instructions are also pretty basic. If you have a fair knowledge of sewing, you should be fine!
