Have you ever made a bottle block? They’re so easy: Take a rectangle of fabric, add black triangles to each corner, add a lid and, there you go, a bottle. Now take lots of bright, happy bug fabrics and you have the cutest gift for a little boy.

I made my son Dan one of these quilts a few years ago (it’s now in shreds, guess he loved it.) I had all these fabrics leftover and had a grand ol’ time putting this one together. Of course, the most work is everybody’s favorite part, appliqueing all the escaped bugs.

This one was made for the daughter of a friend who is expecting her first baby very soon now. Hope he loves it to pieces!

    1. Hi Dawn,

      I don’t have a pattern for this, as I made mine based on a photo, figuring it out as I went along. However, if you do an internet search you can find lots of patterns out there. Here’s one on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/market/bottle_quilt_pattern.

      I’d love to see your finished quilt for your aunt, it’ll be fun choosing all the fabrics. 🙂

      Happy creating!
