Fabric ready to make into Kids Quilt Kits

I've had a somewhat busy day today sorting out some fabric I bought off E Bay for only £20 to make into Baby Quilts/Playmats
I thought you might like to see a photo of the colours I have put together to make them with so here they are:


and here they are in a little more detail:









I just have to cut them up & sort the fabric for the Top, Bottom & Edging strips 

These should make around 40 quilts when all done, I'm going to make the kits up first then I can pick one out at a time to make them up as I feel like it!lol!!

This is how I intend to cut them all up:
FQ = 22” x 18”

18 divided by 3” = 6 pieces at 22” wide

4FQ = total of 24 strips @ 3” x 22”

4 FQ will do 2 quilts

36” = 90cm ( 12 pieces)
22” = 55 cm

 each quilt  100cm x 70cm approx finished size needs the following fabric:

  • 12 strips 3” x 22” ( 3 each fabric )
  • 5” x 22” x 2 (top/bottom)  (4 pieces for 2 quilts)
  • 5” x 44” x 2(sides)    (4 pieces for 2 quilts)
  • 1 metre backing
  • 1 metre wadding

therefore for 2 quilts I need the following fabric:


  • 2 metre backing (1metre backing/quilt)
  • 4 FQ cut into 24 x3” strips @22” (12/ quilt)
  • 1 metre sides,top & bottom (0.5 metre/quilt)
  • 2 metre x 32” wadding (1metre/quilt)
