Diamond Quilted Cradle Pad


Every baby in my family has used this heirloom cradle with their babies. When I had this cradle in my possession 5 years ago I had a pad for it that I’d found at a thrift store. But it’s been lost somewhere between the four family babies that have been born since. So I had to make a pad for it.

I pieced together my scraps of quilt batting and used a white cotton sheet for outer pieces. I machine quilted it with a regular foot(one of these days I’m going to buy a walking foot!)and then serged around the edges.

Right now it’s folded in half. I kept it a larger rectangle for now so that the pad could also be used as a tummy time quilt or another use but I may change my mind about that and cut it to fit exactly.  I could even unfold it and sew corner seams to make a built-in bumper. I just haven’t decided yet.
