Shape Puzzle Ball Baby Quilt Pattern


Instant Digital Download

This quilt pattern was designed as a beautiful gift for a new baby. The pattern includes eleven foundation paper pieced quilt blocks (Ten Shapes and the Puzzle Ball Centre block)

Most people will remember playing with one of these Shape Puzzle Balls as a child (or as an adult with kids!). That’s why it’s the perfect quilt to make as a baby shower gift or even a toddlers birthday!

When finished the quilt size is approximately 26” x 26”. This sizing includes a 2” border. The quilt is a great size for a bassinet, Moses basket, car blanket or play-mat.

This quilt pattern contains foundation templates for ten (10) 6" shape quilt blocks and one (1) 12" Shape-O Ball center quilt block. It also contains Applique Templates for the Shape Blocks if the purchaser would prefer to use this method. Alternatively if you don’t want to make the entire quilt, you could just make the blocks you like and put them into your own arrangement.

This quilt pattern is great for beginners to the paper piecing method. It comes with basic instructions on how to use the Foundation Paper Piecing Method and by starting with the simpler blocks, you should be able to get used to the method before tackling the larger center block featuring the Shape-O Ball.

- Fabric requirements (This pattern is Fat Quarter friendly)
- Colour Foundation Templates for 10 x 6” Blocks and 1 x 12” Block, all with 1/4” seam allowance.
- 10 x Optional Appliqué Templates
- Comprehensive instructions for constructing each block.
- Comprehensive instructions for constructing your quilt top.
- A separate file with Basic Foundation Piecing Instructions for beginners.

Frequently Asked Questions

I found a mistake in one of your patterns, what can I do about it?

Each of my patterns has been developed with care and tested by multiple people. However, if you find a mistake in one of my patterns, please send me an email containing a photo of the mistake or detailed description (page number and problem) within 30 days of your original purchase. I will not only refund your purchase, but will also provide you with another pattern free of charge as well as a corrected copy of the pattern you originally purchased when it becomes available.

The pattern I purchased does not list fabric requirements - Is this a mistake?

It's not a mistake. Most of my patterns are Foundation Pieced Patterns and Fabric requirements can vary greatly depending on your technique, experience and level of skill.
I have found that most people like to use scraps from their stash or Fat Quarters to make smaller Foundation Pieced blocks.
Large Patterns and Patterns that are not Foundation Pieced will have a list fabric requirements.

I cant seem to access or download my pattern. What can I do?

The item you have purchased is digital in nature. I highly recommend you download it immediately after purchase and save a copy of this file to your computer for future use. However if something goes wrong and for some reason you can no longer access your pattern, email me with a copy of your receipt, date of purchase or Etsy order number and I will send you another copy as soon as I can.
