All the patchwork is already done by the artist before printing these easy to sew baby quilts. This means you can sew the fabric as a regular blanket, but still get the look of a quilt. Even a beginner can create a keepsake blanket for their little one with 2 yards of fabric a sewing machine and basic thread, needle, etc.
Some people call these cheater quilts, but I think digital patchwork is more like an opportunity to create amazing patterns that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

Amborela designs baby quilt fabrics in coordinating colorways so you can mix and match as you sew a custom quilt.

Get the look of a star quilt for your nursery without doing any piecework. Amborela makes sewing a baby quilt easy with these cheater star quilt prints in 5 different colorways. Each patch in the quilt comes from a coordinate fabric in the Lotus & Mandala collection so you can match your backing fabric.
Quilt designs have evolved to embrace patterns that wouldn’t be feasible or practical in a traditionally pieced quilt. Not bound by the tools of piecework and a sewing machine, the possibilities are intriguing. Amborela’s modern style baby quilts print on 1 yard of fabric as a wholecloth quilt rather than repeating like a quilt block.
Each colorway in Amborela’s woodland nursery collection includes a design for a wholecloth baby quilt. Choose from a variety of small, mid, and large scale coordinates for your quilt backing and binding.
