Baby Gingham Quilt Pattern Is Free


Fat Quarter Shop / YouTube


Easy, Cheap, & Quick

I love quilting, especially when it fits the bill for a few different things: it’s easy, it’s quick, and it’s inexpensive to make. Not only did I find something that fits the bill, but I love it!


This baby gingham quilt takes only 3 hours to make, you only need 3 fabrics total, and the pattern is 100% free. I don’t think a quilt could get much better than that.

The Fat Quarter Shop on YouTube stitches this quilt together for us in a video tutorial. If you wanna make this cute little quilt, here’s how to do it.

You will need:

  • 3/4 yard of light fabric
  • 3/4 yard of dark fabric (similar tone to the light fabric)
  • 1 3/8 yard of medium fabric (in between the light & dark, similar tone)

Stitch It On Up

What makes this quilt so simple is the blocks: the fabric is just cut up into equal squares! Before you cut it into squares, however, you’ll want to make it easier on yourself: Cut the fabrics into equal sized strips.

Sew These strips together, then cut them into the strips of equal-sized squares. Once you sew up those strips, the quilt top is done. Yes, seriously.

Add your batting, backing, and any borders, and you’re all done!
