The sweetest images of a patchwork baby mat dropped into our Offset Warehouse inbox last week and we just had to share them with all of you!
Anna from A Alicia contacted us with her latest sewing project, a patchwork baby mat and adorable new baby to show it off. The secret is – it’s not really patchwork at all! Anna cleverly used the block print repeat in our Scarlet Hand Block Print fabric and quilted the fabric in between the squares to give a patch work effect.
Such a good idea – We wish we’d thought of it! Here’s how you can make your own like Anna…

What You Need:
Scarlet Hand Block Print
White Medium Weight Basket Weave Cotton
What to do!
Place the two fabrics right sides together then the wadding on the bottom. Pin and sew around the outside – leaving a small gap on one edge.
Blind stitch the gap.
On your sewing machine sew a straight stitch between all of the squares on the pattern. Quilting all of the layers together! You could also do a stitch around the outside to give it a rim like Anna’s!
A lovely patchwork style baby blanket – and it’s super simple. Busy bee Anna has also recently just released a DIY book. Check it out on her website.
