The finished size is approximately 45" by 60", which is just right for a crib, toddler bed, play quilt, or security blanket that'll be treasured for years. Suitable for both wovens and knits (though we recommend woven fabrics if you're a beginner, just to reduce the frustration that can accompany stretchy knits). Add a heart-shaped applique to the back of the quilt (pattern included), to touch your little one's heart when s/he's tucked in all cozy and warm.
Materials list: 3/4 yard of fabric A and coordinating fabric B for the blocks; 1/2 yard of inner border fabric C and 1/2 yard of outer border fabric D; 1 3/4 yard of coordinating backing fabric; 1 yard of coordinating binding fabric; a 3" x 3" scrap of fabric for the heart applique; 45" by 60" of quilt batting; 1 skein of coordinating embroidery floss.
Half the purchase price of this pattern will be donated to Project Linus, who you also might want to support with a gift of a quilt or two once you realize how easy they are to make and how good the cause is.
