Batik scraps:

  • Each block uses 4 different colors - you will need one Half Square Triangle 2" finished square and one Triangle in a Square side of each color.
  • Making one cut as shown below.
  • You'll have two sections of the same color that you can mix and match in the blocks.

Sew with a 1/4" seam allowance. Sew all of the Half Square Rectangles the same way following the diagram below.
Because we are using batiks you don't have to worry about the right or wrong side. (If you use a fabric with a right/wrong side you will need to cut double the amount of pieces).

Each block uses four 2½" squares, four Half Square triangle blocks and four Half Rectangle blocks.

Add batting and backing and quilt as desired. I usually do a fairly large stipple quilt design on a baby quilt.

Cut 2½" binding in your choice of batiks and add to the finished scrappy batik baby quilt.
