First Heartbeat


About this Quilt


As sweet as it is simple, this easy baby quilt is a snap to put together. Simple strip-piecing, combined with thoughtful placement yields a design that’s both stylishly on-trend, and classic. It’s perfect for a last minute baby shower—just pick the fabrics coordinated to the nursery, and the parents-to-be will be delighted!

The generous area of “unpatched” space at the top allows for some adventurous quilting, if you have the time! If not, it still allows the fabric print to sing!
