Baby Boy Flannel Quilt

I wanted to make a quilt for a cute friend and so this is what I came up with…a Baby Boy Flannel Quilt!baby boy flannel quiltI love these fun colors of navy, green and gray! 

The little whale blocks are pretty cute too!

This was a fun quilt to put together.  It is simply 5 1/2 inch blocks sewn together.  baby boy flannel quiltThe diagonal pattern is easy to place, because you simply repeat the pattern.  You could also do a random pattern with these squares and they are fun to do too!

All of these fabrics are flannel except for a navy blue minky.  That is a  great dimension to add a little  bit of different texture in the mix.

I added a polka dot stop border and a navy border to finish off the quilt.baby boy flannel quiltThe back of the quilt is the same navy minky fabric that is used on one of the squares, so it is a fun cuddle quilt!baby boy flannel quiltDon’t you love the binding?  I am not sure what the pattern of this is called, but I love how it brings out all of the colors in the quilt!  It is a fun way to finish off this quilt!

I just did an all-over stipple pattern when I quilted this quilt.  I used a navy blue thread and my stitches show up a lot more.  Not sure if that is a good thing!!

A flannel quilt is perfect for throwing down on the floor to let your baby play on.  It is soft and comfy but it is also very durable and washable!!!baby boy flannel quiltSo this is my Baby Boy Flannel Quilt all folded up and ready to give!

Do you have any little ones coming that you need to make a quilt for??  A flannel quilt is both cute, and practical.  And…they get even more cuddley as you wash them and use them!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!  

Thanks for Visiting!

  1. Can you please give more directions when you show your cute quilts? Such as measurement of squares; how many – how much material to buy: the quilt is darling; but we cannot be inside of your mind. More info: please?. Pretty please….I don’t think I am the only one out there that would like more detail.

    1. Sharron, Sorry this was a pattern that I just made up as I went. It has 5 1/2 inch squares. You can make it as big as you want. I will have to pay more attention to how much fabric to buy in the future. I sometimes use fabric from my stash and so I didn’t pay attention to the amount that you would need to buy. I will try to be more diligent in the future. Thanks for the heads up!

      1. Thanks for responding Rita! I just love your blog and faithfully use your VT handouts each and every month.
        Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family!

    1. Pat, I am sorry that I did not put more information on this quilt. It is one that I just made up and I did not keep track of the amount of fabric. I used some of my stash and I bought some. I will try to be more diligent in the future. They are 5 1/2 inch squares, and you can make the quilt as big or as little as you like. I know that does not help you, and I will try to write everything down as I go so that I can share it with you in the future. Thanks for the input!
