This quilted play mat includes lots of interesting textures and fun crinkly leaves. It's also crazy cute, and would look adorable in any baby's room!
Finished size is about 42 inches across, depending on fabric shrinkage.
Step 1: Materials and Equipment
Main fabric (The aqua on mine): 1/2 yard of each of 3 different quilting fabrics.
Scalloped border fabric (orange on mine): 1/4 yard of each of 3 different quilting fabrics.
Backing Fabric: 1 1/2 yards. Any light to medium weight woven cotton fabric will work.
Leaves: 1/8 yard each of 4 different fabrics. Scraps work great for this! I used satin, corduroy, and plush minky. Look for interesting textures.
Tree Trunk: 20" by 12" piece. I used dot minky.
Quilt batting: 45" by 45". I used Warm and Natural "Baby/ Crib" size.

It is best if you do not prewash or preshrink your main and scalloped boarder fabrics. They will quilt up better if they are quilted before washing.
a sewing machine
scissors, and a rotary cutter and mat, if you have one.
chalk or disappearing fabric pen
lots of pins!
