Oh Baby! Quilts Make the Best Shower Gifts

Apr 3, 2019 8:49:03 AM / by AccuQuilt

Handmade quilts make treasured baby shower gifts. Baby quilts become blankies that are either loved, used, and kept forever or passed down as beloved heirlooms for the next generations. They may be used as crib blankets to keep baby cozy or wall hangings for decorating the nursery. Following are four free baby quilt patterns perfect for the new little one in your life.


Simply click on the subtitle to access the link that goes straight to the pattern on our website.   Once you download the free patterns and get started cutting with your GO! Cutter, you’ll realize just how easy and fun it is to piece together these adorable baby décor and quilt projects. Video tutorials for each pattern are available to offer tips and visuals so you know you’re on track.


4 Free Quilt Patterns to Coo Over


GO! Propeller Planes Quilt Pattern

Airplanes, propeller blocks, and your imagination mean baby’s room will take flight with this quilt. Use your GO! cutter to make landing the angles on those airplanes and propellers a breeze. The quilt measures three feet square, which also makes it a great wall hanging.

GO! Up in the Clouds Quilt Pattern

Marching chevrons, airplanes in mid-flight, and a crisp border make this quilt a handsome way to elevate baby’s aviation-themed nursery. It’s bold, graphic, and ready to be customized with your choice of fabric colors. The free downloadable pattern makes a 42" x 48” quilt, which fits nicely on a crib and is also large enough to be used as a floor play blanket for tummy time.

GO! Elephant Cuddles Throw Quilt

Our take on this adorable elephant quilt makes cuddle fabric into strips and a border for a sweet dose of softness. What will your version look like? This free pattern makes a 28" x 37” quilt. Parents will love the smaller size throw as it fits well in standard or mobile cribs and won’t catch on stroller wheels when on-the-go.

Wrap It Up Right

Now that you’ve made it, present it with panache. Go simple by rolling your baby quilt neatly and finishing with a large bow. Go classic by placing your quilt gift in a large box with acid-free tissue and wrap it up in coordinating paper. For a gift that’s twice as nice, give your quilt in a reusable tote bag. Make this stylish GO! Big Pattern bag, which was designed by Vivian Peritts for AccuQuilt and featured in Modern Quilts Unlimited for a practical and pretty little extra for mom.
