    Baby quilt question

    I have I have a set of 5 coordinating fat quarters. Do you think they could be enough to do a fast baby quilt, with back ground fabric added of course. Sorry to sound so dumb, but I usually follow a pattern when I buy fabric. This was a gift that I really want to use. Thanks for your help 😄

    Well, you roughly have 1.25 yards of fabric....do you have a baby quilt pattern for that amount of fabric? Usually, I have to put more (background) fabric with my fat quarters!

      Yes, check out this website, they have patterns for baby quilts, and some only need as few as four fat quarters, of course those have more background fabric.

        The "cheaper by the 1/2 dozen" pattern works well with 6 FQ so you wouldn't have to add much.
        Somewhere, there is a chart that tells you how many charms etc that you can get from a FQ so you could plan your own easier.

          A charm pack is about 3/4 .yd and a layer cake is about 3. a jelly roll is just under 3 yds. So, why don't you look at cutting corners tutorial and use the fat quarters cut into 2 1/2 in. strip. At some back ground fabric and you'll make a great small quilt

            Should be more than enough with background fabric and borders.

                That is absolutely enough, especially when adding a background color! Also, the nice thing about baby quilts - they don't necessarily NEED to be crib size; they can be for the stroller, or as a play mat, etc... so size is up to you!
