Kid And Baby Quilt Patterns

While many quilters love giving a quilt to someone special in their lives, making a baby quilt pattern can be that much more special. From kid quilts meant to protect little ones as they cruise around in their strollers to crib quilts perfect for baby to snuggle up with during naptime, each of these free baby quilt patterns is ideal for that special someone in your life.

If you’re just learning how to quilt, a baby quilt can also be the perfect canvas to learn the process and make mistakes. As most baby or crib quilts are smaller in size, it can be a lot less intimidating to prepare a quilt binding for a small square than for a large, bed sized quilt. Several of our free kid quilt patterns also feature big quilt blocks, great for mastering the techniques in a quilt block. You might even find that after looking through our baby quilts, you have the itch to design your own baby quilt using quilting blocks from one pattern and a border from another! Our collection of free quilt patterns for baby and children are great for anyone looking for a pattern to get started on or just for inspiration! Download today for inspiration and more!
