Rainbow Bunting Baby Quilt Tutorial
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. :)
This is gorgeous, and it actually sounds easy enough for me to make, except maybe for the binding part. I will have to have a go at it one day. Thanks for the great tutorial!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I have been thinking of making a picnic/ beach quilt, wouldn't this bunting be fun for that kind quilt too?! I love it, it is so cheerful looking , thanks xxReplyDelete

I just finished making mine for a friend who is expecting! What a fantastic tutorial! I am so proud of my finished product! I hope she likes it too!ReplyDelete
I just made my own version of this beautiful blanket. As an novice, I feel I did very well. I am a bit sad that my binding didn't go on as I had hoped and it makes it look very messy; however, I LOVE the look I achieved! Thank you for showing us how to make this! Maybe a tutorial on how to apply bias to rounded corners???? :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing! Yes this does appear to be an easy one. I will give it a go for my new grandson! fingers crossed for me:) lolReplyDelete
I love making this quilt. It goes together easily and has a huge impact for such a simple concept. I made one for my expectant daughter in the colors of her nursery and she loved it. Getting ready to make another for her friend.ReplyDelete
