Scrappy Nines Baby Quilt Tutorial

I’ve been working on a sweet, new baby quilt tutorial to share and I love the way it’s turned out! It’s a fun – and relatively simple – quilt to make with short-cuts that make it all come together quickly! One of my most popular baby quilt tutorials on this blog is my Fast Four Patch baby quilt.  This is a slightly more advanced version of that quilt – basically two alternating quilt blocks that create a fun, scrappy design.

This quilt is made with the new Vintage Adventure collection by Beverly McCullough for Riley Blake Designs in soft pastels and florals and features sweet illustrations of vintage bikes, campers, and hot air balloons. Vintage Adventure is arriving in quilt shops now so check your favorite shop. Or you can find it online from The Fat Quarter Shop.

The finished quilt measures 40″ x 52″.

Fabric requirements:

  • At least 12 strips 2 1/2″ x WOF (you can use more strips if you want a bigger variety of prints – see note under nine-patch directions)
  • 3/4 yard of gray background print
  • 5/8 yard pink fabric
  • 1/2 yard border fabric
  • 1/2 yard binding fabric
  • 1 5/8 yard backing fabric (this will give you just a piece of yardage just slightly wider that the quilt top. If you would like a wider top then get 2 1/2 yards to piece a larger backing.)

Cutting instructions:

From Gray background fabric cut:

  • 2 strips 4 3/4″ x WOF and subcut into 16 squares 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″
  • 1 strips 7 1/4″ x WOF and subcut 4 squares 7 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ plus one more 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ square
  • 2 strips 3 1/2″ x WOF and subcut 10 rectangles 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and 4 squares 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

From Pink fabric cut 5 strips 4″ x WOF and subcut into 48 squares 4″ x 4″

From Border fabric cut 5 strips 2 1/2″ x WOF

From Binding fabric cut 5 strips 2 1/2″ x WOF (or make 192″ continuous bias binding)

Scrappy Nine Patch Blocks

This quilt is perfect for using pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips. For this baby version, you technically only need 12 strip 2 1/2″ x width-of-fabric (WOF) strips, so it was perfect to use this Petite Rolie Polie variation with only 20 strips.  I cut the strips in half to 2 1/2″ x  21″ strips so I could use a bigger variety of prints for a scrappier feel.

Precuts are such a handy way of getting a variety of prints without having to buy and cut yardage. Even if I don’t use a whole set of precuts for a project or I cut the precuts down to other sizes, it’s still worth it to me for the variety prints you get.

One pro-tip for using precuts: they often come with pinked edges to prevent fraying. This, however, means it’s sometimes tricky to know what edge to base your 1/4″ seam allowance. I recommend measuring the width of your strips and find whether it’s the peak or valley of the pinked edges that you want to line up with the edge of your foot for the seam allowance.

Cut 24 strips 2 1/2″ x 21″ and sew them into 8 sets of 3 strips. Press all seams one direction.

Cut each strip set into 7 units 2 1/2″ wide.

You will now have 56 units to create 18 nine-patch blocks.

Match up 18 sets of 3 units to create blocks and sew them together to create 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ unfinished nine-patch blocks. (You will want to repress some of the seams so that the seam allowances are pressed in opposite direction so that the seams nest together and help the points to match nicely.)

Square in a Square blocks

To make 17 Square in a Square blocks use 17 gray 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ squares and 32 pink 4″ x 4″ squares. Cut pink squares in half on the diagonal. (If you are using a stripe like me, cut half of the stripe squares with the diagonal going one direction and the other half with the diagonal going the opposite direction.)  Match up 4 triangles with each gray square. Center two triangles to opposite sides of square and sew. Press seams toward the triangles. Clip dog ears (overhanging edges) and center and sew two remaining triangles. Square-up block to 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.

Make 17 of these blocks.

Flying Geese Blocks

You will need 14 Flying Geese blocks measuring 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ for this quilt.

I like to use the 4-in-1 method for making Flying Geese as it saves a lot of time and there is no waste. Use a 7 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ background and 4 squares 4″x 4″ for each set.

You can find all of the steps for the 4-in-1 Flying Geese process here.

Repeat this process 4 times to end up with 16 geese. (You will have two extra left over.) Square up each ‘goose’ block to 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.

Quilt Layout

Lay out first two rows of quilt using diagram above:

Top row start with 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ gray square, then flying goose block, gray 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangle, goose, rectangle, goose, and then 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ square

Second row start with flying goose, nine-patch, square in a square, nine patch, square in a square, nice patch, flying goose.

Third row start with 6 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ rectangle, square in a square, nine patch, square in a square, nine patch, square in a square, rectangle.

Repeat block layout in following rows, finishing with a mirror-image of the top row.

Sew rows together pressing seams toward the nine-patch blocks and solid rectangles. (See pressing directions below.)

This will help the seams nest together when rows are assembled.

Sew rows together and press seams one direction.

Add borders

From 5 strips 2 1/2″ x WOF, create two side border strips 2 1/2″ x 48 1/2″ and sew them to sides of pieced quilt. Press seams toward borders.

Create two 2 1/2″ x 40 1/2″ strips and sew to top and bottom. Press seams toward borders.

Quilt as desired. The adorable quilting on mine was done by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting. If you would like to quilt your own, I walk through the quilting process here.

Precuts friendly short cut baby quilt tutorialBinding: I chose to cut bias strips of the cute mint stripe for this quilt. You can learn how to create bias binding here and  how to finish and bind a quilt here.

I love the soft, low volume palette of this quilt, but I’m already excited to try this pattern in another color scheme. It was so fast and fun to make and I love the secondary start motif!

If you would like a printable PDF version of this pattern, you can find one here or here for $2.

Enjoy!

    This quilt is gorgeous!! I have a friend who just became a mom through adoption (a little earlier than they expected as the baby came prematurely) so I need to get a quilt made for her before she brings sweet Wrenlee home! I love the scrappy stars and their “theme” for her room is “our greatest adventure yet”. So that precious fabric would be perfect!!

    As there are only so many quilts you can have in your home or gift to family members, I now only sew for charity, making baby blankets. It would be wonderful to win the fabric, however I won’t wait to see who wins, but will start on this quilt from the pattern and great instructions. Thank you.

    Hi! Relatively newbie quilter here, question, do you need to clean finish (surge or pinking sheer) each piece? My last (and first) quilt, I surged every.single.free edge and I feel it added a ton of extra bulk, but thinking for a baby quilt it may get washed more than normal and want the cotton to last. Am I being over protective of my edges?

      HI Merida,

      Good question! No, you don’t need to worry about the edges. Since all of the edges are buried between the layers of batting and backing, they won’t fray because there won’t be any friction on the fabric. I’ve made dozens of quilts and haven’t had that be an issue.

      It is important to use a consistent 1/4″ seam allowance – that will leave you plenty of fabric beyond the seams to keep from fraying. Also, I prefer pressing my seams to one side (rather than press them open) to stabilize them more.
