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:
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.
