Not only did I get my baby quilt checked off my to-do list of things to get ready for my new baby, I earned a Merit Badge as a bonus! This project completed my requirements for the Beginners Quilting Badge.
Quilting Beginner Level
- If you don’t know how to quilt, learn.
- Pick a simple pattern like a doll-sized quiilt that will help you learn the basics, even just sewing squares together.
- Learn how to add a backing and batting and do simple quilting stitches to hold everything in place.
- Finish your quilt project. There is a three-hour minimum time investment required.
