This tutorial is my addition to luvinthemommyhood's Baby Bonanza. I was so thrilled when Shannon asked me to be a part of it!
Since I've had buntings on my mind lately, the idea for this quilt struck me and I just had to make it. Here's how I did it.
2 pieces of white quilter's cotton (or a sheet), 25 x 37 inches
1 piece of flannel, 25 x 37 inches
21 bunting flags, 4 inches each (I show how to cut them here)
Bias tape (I show how to make your own here)
Start by laying out your flags across one of the white pieces of fabric, draping them across just like an actual bunting. When you're happy with your placement, pin them down.
Sew a tiny zig zag across the top of each row of flags.
Then, starting at one end and working your way up and down each side of the flags, sew a tiny zig zag on the remaining sides.
Assemble your quilt sandwich. Flag piece on top, flannel in the middle, other white piece on the bottom. Pin everything together.
Sew a tiny straight stitch along the top of each row of flags to quilt the layers together.
Bind your quilt with the bias tape, and you're all set!
A happy little quilt, perfect for a boy or a girl...
There are probably a million possibilities for color combinations for this quilt. Think of all the buntings you could come up with!!
And since my babies are not such babies any more, I've listed this quilt in my shop if anyone's interested. :)
