Baby Rattle Quilt Block

Designed by: Treasure It®
Skill level: Intermediate

Here's a fun no-sew quilt block you can attach to a quilted background. Use your child's drawing, printed onto fabric, or create your own design on a piece of fabric. When you add beads, tape, yarn, ribbon, and thread, the result is 3-dimensional fun.

Materials needed:

  • two 8" x 10" sheets of Treasure Tape
  • Treasure tape dots
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in 033 Royal Blue
  • green checked satin 1/4" ribbon
  • yellow checked satin 1/2" ribbon
  • coordinating satin 1/2" ribbon
  • miscellaneous micro beads, seed beads, and bugle beads
  • four decorative buttons
  • design printed on fabric sheet (8 1/2" x 11")

Instructions:

1. Remove the white backing from an 8x10 sheet of Treasure Tape. Lay the fabric piece on the sticky tape, with the printed side facing the tape. Smooth out any bubbles.

2. Turn your fabric piece over and remove the red liner exposing the top sticky area.

3. Lay the yellow checked ribbon and coordinating 1/2" ribbon all around the edge of the fabric piece, pressing into the tape to adhere. Attach a button in each corner using the Treasure Tape dots.

4. Use the #12 Braid in color 033 to outline the rattle. We also used the Braid to make an outline of a star shape in the center of the rattle.

5. Lay the green ribbon back and forth on the tape to create the the handle. Press the ribbon into the tape to make sure it adheres.

6. With your fingers, carefully lay the colored beads and bugles in the center of the rattle. Keep the colored beads contained in this area.

7. When decorating is complete, lay your design in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.
