I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy baby quilt patterns. This Color Hex pattern by Jeni Baker (incolororder.com) makes the perfect quilt for a new little one! It's easy to piece and looks really great (and inexpensive) with the solid fabrics! Finishes at 45" x 45".
Why buy a quilt kit? Well, it's a lot easier than going out and finding all the fabrics you need for a new project! And the fabrics will be cut to the amounts you need for the pattern (they won't be cut in blocks) so you won't have a lot of extra fabric. This is really great for baby quilt kits. You might not need the same fabrics over and over again or you may not have the space to store a lot of extra scraps. There are a lot of great kits in all sizes and styles available so you are sure to find something perfect for the person you are making it for!
