Super Easy Puffy Quilt

Super soft & fun baby quilt!
This is a fun and simple way to showcase fabric with big designs
Want to make your own??
Find the pattern below.




I love these bright fun colors. I used a super puffy polyester batting that makes this quilt SO soft and cozy!
DIRECTIONS: 5/8 YARD OF FLOWER PRINT
1/2 YARD OF TAN FABRIC
1/4 YARD OF EACH OF THE FOUR-BLOCK SQUARES EXCEPT FOR GREEN WHICH IS ALSO THE BORDER. FOR THAT YOU WILL NEED ABOUT 1/2 YARDS
I USED ABOUT 1/2 YARD FOR PINK WHICH IS ALSO USED IN BINDING.
DIRECTIONS: Cut out 8 squares measuring 10 1/2 by 10 1/2 "
Of both pinks, orange and green cut out four squares each measuring 5 1/2 by 5 1/2" (total of 16)
Of both pinks, orange and green cut out four squares each measuring  2 1/2 by 2 1/2" (total of 16) (I also cut out two extra of the light pink 2 1/2 by 2 1/2" to use for the corners)
Of tan fabric cut 12- 2 1/2 by 6 1/2" pieces; 8- 10 1/2 by 2 1/2" pieces and 6- 2 1/2 by 2 1/2" pieces.
1. Sew two different colored 2 1/2 by 2 1/2" to a piece of the tan (tan should be in the middle). Do this to all the 2 1/2" squares.
2. Sew the 2 1/2 by 6 1/2" strips to the finished strips. This will create a 10 1/2 square. Then sew the 2 1/2 by 10 1/2 strips to both ends. This creates your tan with four small square blocks.
3. Sew your 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch blocks together.
4. Sew all your blocks together alternating them however you like best.
5. For border cut two strips 2 1/2 by 40 1/2 inches long. Sew the pieces to the top and bottom of quilt.
6. For side borders cut two strips 2 1/2 by 40 1/2 inches long and cut four 2 1/2 by 2 1/2" long and sew these small squares to the ends of each strip you've just cut and then sew them to the sides.
7. Add your back, batting and using a walking foot quilt down the squares.
8. I usually buy 1/2 yard for binding.
