You can make a baby quilt lightening fast using charm squares like this Moda precut called Wonderland by MoMo available on sale at The Quilted Castle for 7.00 USD. A Charm Pack consists of 40 squares of 5” X 5” fabric  

There are many patterns and tutorials available if you need design inspiration or direction in using a charm pack.

Amy Smart of The Quilting Diaries blog shares a nicely written tutorial for a simple baby quilt using Moda Wonderland. She says this about using specialty cut fabrics:
Charm Packs are an easy way to make a simple baby quilt with a large variety of different but coordinated fabrics.

Go here to get her tutorial.

If you have time and want something more challenging, check out this Baby Dot-to-Dot quilt pattern by Cotton Way. It has a design for a girl and one for a boy, so you get two! Price $8.00 USD.

Go here to get more details about the Dot-to-Dot pattern and to see the entire collection of Charm Pack Patterns.

    Thank you SO much for this topic. It’s perfect for someone like me who is new to quilting and overwhelmed by a full size project, but who also has a fabulous scrap stash a mile high!
