If you’re thinking of getting into quilting, a baby quilt or wall hanging is about the right size of project to begin with.

Fat Quarter offers a number of free quilt patterns to download and print, including the simple yet interesting Baby Four-Patch Quilt.

It’s a great way to use up any odds-and-ends of fabric you may have leftover from other sewing projects, and the small scale makes a baby quilt so encouragingly quick to finish up! I’d sew it up in soft flannel and just machine-quilt it straight along the main seams, for a fast and easy “blankie” to keep baby comfy on car trips and picnics.
