Easy Quilted Patchwork Bibs

I saw this pin from a blogger named Jaime Young (what a coincidence, right?) of Sew She Sews for quilted bibs. I fell in love with them and with my sister-in-law due to give birth in July, I was so excited to make some bibs to give to her at her baby shower!

I used a coupon at Joann Fabrics and picked out several flannel and cotton fabrics that I thought coordinated well. I picked out woodland creatures, monkeys, two different kinds of stripes, cute number fabric, and brown circle fabric. I had so much fun piecing them together and coming up with different combinations and Jaime's instructions are so easy to follow! I had never sewn anything like this before and it went so well (I normally mess up a LOT while sewing). I highly recommend her tutorial and pattern!!

Here are the bibs I made!

easy to sew bibs

Here's Staci at her shower, opening the bibs!


I think this is a great project for a beginning sewer who has completed some projects (like pillows and the easy dress) and is ready to try something new!

I had so much fun quilting these bibs that I even became tempted to try an actual quilt!! Something simple and modern like this one or even this "sew as you go" quilt. Those are my kinds of projects!!

  3. Wow ! I only made one & I thought I was doing well ! Just spotted your post on sew she sews blog and couldnt resist having a look at your handiwork !

    Pop by & have a look at mine someday & Im pretty new to Blogging but a follower of yours now!


  4. Jamie, those are so great! Nice job! I see a new product line coming at the antique mall?!

  5. Thanks for the kind words everyone! The only thing with my sewing is that I'm so not a perfectionist, so up close, they definitely have "character." Not sure anyone would want to pay for them with their wonkiness but they are definitely made with love for little Ollie! :)
