Make a Plush Chenille Rag Quilt for Baby!

New Baby Rag Quilt Kits!

We have new kits to share with you today. You'll find them in the Quilt Kits section of the store!

Blue & White Chenille Baby Quilt Kit

You can make an ultra soft rag quilt for baby using the plush textured chenille included in this quilt kit from Wimpole Street Creations.

Chenille fabric can vary greatly across manufacturers, so I think you'll be pleased with the high quality cotton chenille fabric included in this kit!

This baby rag quilt kit includes all the chenille fabric you need for the quilt top and step-by-step instructions for making a rag quilt. Additional fabric requirements are included with the instructions. You can choose your own cute baby themed fabrics to coordinate with the soft pastel colors of the chenille.

Rag quilts are comprised of 3 layers of material. The top layer of this quilt is made using the chenille included with the kit. Flannel fabric is used for the center layer, in place of traditional batting material. For the backing material, you can choose either tricot or cotton, depending on your preference.

Pink & White Chenille Baby Quilt Kit

The quilt pattern is a traditional rag quilt patchwork design made up of alternating color squares. It's a simple quilt design for beginners and makes a great weekend quilt project for experienced quilters!

With rag quilts, rather than hiding your seam allowances inside your quilt layers, seams are formed on the top side of the quilt. To finish your quilt, you snip along the exposed seam edges, creating a fringed effect. After a few washings, the fringe will fray and create a soft and ruffled appearance. Baby's new quilt will be ultra soft!

You'll need basic sewing and quilting supplies to complete your rag quilt project, including a sewing machine, matching thread, rotary cutting tools, and quilting pins. Spring-loaded scissors are recommended for snipping your quilt.

Visit the Quilt Kits section for additional details on these baby quilt kits and to see our complete selection of easy quilt kits.

Kits make it easy for beginners to learn a new craft. They're also convenient for busy crafters with little time to spare. Kits also make great gifts to give this holiday season. You'll find a creative project kit for everyone on your list at Weekend Kits!
