Cuddly Quilt Kits from Fabric Editions are coordinated collections of kid & baby themed fabrics with simple quilt patterns and easy instructions.

Cuddly quilts include a nice variety of fabrics, such as premium cotton, soft flannel, and textured plush.

Varying fabrics enhance the look as well as the feel of the quilt.  Baby's little hands will enjoy exploring the different textures.

These soft baby quilts are perfect for cuddling baby and they add a splash of color for accent decor too.  Designer fabrics & contemporary color combinations make these quilts a perfect choice for baby's nursery or a child's bedroom.

But, the best thing about these quilt kits is that they're super easy!  The quilt tops are simply pieced designs, as pictured on the tag in the photo.

The quilting instructions provide helpful tips & important information about fabric care, iron settings, and seam allowances. It's a good idea to read through all of the instructions before starting your quilt project.

The main steps for completing your baby quilt, plus some supplies you'll need along the way, are as follows:
  1. Cutting the Fabric Pieces – rotary cutting tools, including rotary cutter, cutting mat, and quilt ruler.

  2. Sewing the Blocks & Quilt Top – quilting pins, sewing machine, thread, iron & pressing cloth, seam ripper, and scissors.

  3. Finishing the Quilt – the instructions use a turn-inside-out method for finishing the quilt without batting or binding.  Many quilters prefer to add batting for extra loft.
You'll find many of the supplies you need in the Quilting Supplies section of the store.

If you're not sure how to add a batting layer when doing the turn-inside-out quilt method, this helpful Baby Quilt Tutorial on the Cloud 9 Fabrics blog provides step-by-step guidance.

Experienced quilters may prefer to use a different finishing method altogether.  If you decide to add binding, you'll need to supply the binding material.

Some quilters make their own binding, while others purchase pre-made quilt binding in a coordinating color.  Either way works well.  Your finished quilt will be a wonderful handmade gift for baby and children of all ages.
