Awhile back we showed you how to make a Gingham Baby Quilt but I just recently re-did my guest room and wanted a large black and white gingham quilt to go in that room. So, I modified the original tutorial from using 5″ pre-cut squares to 10″ pre-cut squares which made the perfect size quilt for the bottom of a queen bed that I have in that room.
And I REALLY REALLY love this quilt! It is so great in that room and looks amazing with the giant sized gingham squares. It’s such a simple quilt pattern too, so I put together the quilt top in two afternoons, sent it to Melissa to quilt and I love the way it turned out.
The original Gingham Baby Quilt tutorial with the full instructions can be found HERE, and the only modification I made was using the 10″ pre-cut squares instead of the 5″ ones that the original one calls for. The size of this larger size quilt is approximately 85″ square (which is big and amazing!) and so cozy to use during movie night. I think it might be one of my most favorite quilts I have made this year.
For this quilt you will need:
*40 grey 10″ pre-cut squares
*25 black 10″ pre-cut squares
*16 white 10″ pre-cut squares
*1 yard of black for binding
*4 yards of solid black for backing (or I used a king sized flat sheet in solid black)
The directions for the laying out the full quilt and sewing it together can be found HERE.
P.S. We have updated this tutorial and turned it into a Printable PDF pattern for just $3.95 and it includes both the baby and queen sized versions of this fantastic quilt. Purchase the pattern HERE.
