Baby Quilt With Applique Raindrops

Sometimes I find the most impactful quilts are the simplest.This is a quick and easy baby quilt pattern using simple raw edge applique.

Baby Quilt With Applique Raindrops

This quilt certainly belongs in the category of modern baby quilts and is great for a baby when you don’t know the new arrivals gender or to celebrate a ‘rainbow baby’ after a loss.

Step 1: Preparing your Background

Cut one large piece of background fabric – this can be plain white, white-on-white print or another low-volume print.

Iron on whichever fusible product you are using to the back of your 3 “ x  3” squares before cutting them into the raindrop shapes.

Step 2: Applying Fusible

Step 3: Cutting your Rainbow Raindrops

Cut out your rainbow raindrops. You can either print the included template on to card stock and use it as a cutting template.

Layout your raindrops on your quilt top before ironing in place using the fusible.

Step 4: Layout and Fusing

The raindrops are arranged in a cascading pattern. It is easiest to start with the middle line of raindrops and work out.

When you are confident on your raindrop placements iron them in place following your fusible’s instructions. Then sew by machine to attach them. 

Step 5: Applique
