Have you had a wonderful weekend?

The weather here has been positively balmy!!  15 degrees today (that was the average temperature last July)!

Following on from my Easter Bibs tutorial last week, I thought I’d show you some patchwork versions!

Baby Bibs Tutorial

 


These are great scrap buster projects, using 28 x 2.5″ squares (perfect for leftover jellyroll & binding strips).

I used the same template as before, and quilted the patchwork front and towelling together, before sealing the raw edges with bias binding.

These days there is a lovely selection of pretty bias and trims to choose from. Here’s a small selection I picked up locally.

And if you don’t want to fuss with bias binding, quilt your patchwork front with a little wadding before following my original tutorial.

These bibs took no time at all to make!  Wouldn’t they make gorgeous baby-shower gifts?

Whatever the occasion, I hope you are enjoying my Easter tutorials series.  More to come this week!
