I'm pleased to announce that my first self-published pattern is available on Craftsy! (Update: The pattern is no longer available online. It can be purchased by emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.) Last Fall, I designed the Zoom Zoom quilt that I gave to our 4-year-old friend who had just become a big brother. The race car fabric was from my stash and I designed the cuddle quilt to feature the fun print. From that design I created the Back and Forth baby quilt pattern for you. This new version features Guppies for Lunch by Michael Miller Fabrics and coordinating Kona Solids. It would also be lovely featuring a different novelty or floral print.
The Back and Forth baby quilt pattern is designed to feature a medium to large scale print, surrounded by coordinating fabrics. It works well with a variety of solids or blenders. It's the perfect size for a baby or as a cuddle quilt for a toddler.
The quilt goes together in a day and the instructions are thorough enough for you to easily complete this quilt with no prior experience sewing partial seams. The pattern includes quilting ideas as well as instructions on creating straight and bias binding. The quilt finishes at 35 1/2" x 41". Consider using my machine binding tutorial for a super fast finish!
Below are my original Zoom Zoom quilt and the Kaffe version that Laura created when she tested the pattern.
