Daddy’s Favorite Baby Quilt

Posted on July 2, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in New Patterns, Quilts, Summertime Sampler

In conjunction with the Summertime Samplers, I’m showcasing some options for things you can do with the patterns other than just the quilts that are in the booklet, and offering some bonus patterns along the way — this is another one for you.

I wanted to have this ready in early June; you know, Father’s Day and all, but June was a struggle for me, and it’s now July.

One of the blocks in the Summertime Sampler is the traditional version of the Father’s Choice quilt block, and I thought it would be cute to blow it up big and make a super fast baby quilt from it.

I talked My Cowboy and his trusty steed, Chip the Wonder Horse, into modeling it for me:

I used cute western-themed fabrics for my version that I’ve been hoarding. This is the perfect pattern to show them off without having to cut them up too small!

It’s large pieces, so not only do you get to show off your cute fabric, but it also goes together super super fast, so if you’re in need of a quick baby gift, this is the perfect pattern for you!

I used the rest of my focal print on the back, along with a little bit of the leftover red bandana print:

I quilted mine with an all-over meander, and bound it with the same red bandana print. Super fast!

The finished quilt uses 4 different fabrics, and measures 40″ x 40″ when finished. If you want it larger, you can simply add borders. Or make four of them, and sew them together for a queen-sized version!

The Daddy’s Favorite Baby Quilt pattern is listed in my Etsy shop in PDF format for only $5. A bargain!

And because I have no little cowpoke in mind for my quilt, I’ve also listed my finished “Cowboy’s Favorite” baby quilt for sale, so if you need an even quicker baby gift, you can buy the quilt itself, already made, and get free shipping!

    That is so cute! The fabrics are really fun (your label ties right in with the theme!). Cowboy and Chip did a great job with the quilt holding đŸ™‚

  2. Super cute! You’re right, these large theme prints get lost when you cut them up, so this is the perfect way to use them. Adorable line, evocative of 50’s era.

    I hope Scott was smiling in the pictures. He did a great job. Maybe you’ll put together a calendar of quilts next year featuring him as the model. đŸ˜‰
