Easy Baby Quilt With Appliqué

Hey there! Gabriela here with another quilt project. This time I decided to do a modern quilt with a little appliqué. I am making two of these quilts so I cut all of my fabric at once. 

 

 The white is my background and the fairies will be my center.

Next I laid out my blocks to get a feel for how much space I would have for the appliqué.

I did the appliqué by drawing my letters on my Cricut Explore.

 

 

 I did this in Design Space.

I applied Heat n' Bond to the backs and pressed them.

Next I fused them to the quilt top and stitched around the edges.

I'll be making another quilt like this and then making a Queen size quilt after that. I hope the directions were clear, happy crafting!
