29 Fun And Fabulous Quilt Patterns For Children

Kids love to have a theme for their bedrooms, whether it be cars, animals, princesses, superheroes — this list could go on and on.

But what if you can’t find the perfect blanket in a store for your little one’s dream bedroom?

I’ve gathered up some fabulous inspiration for you to check out for easy quilt patterns for kids.

Hopefully, these will help your imagination take over and create that perfect centerpiece for your child’s bedroom. 

What Size Is A Child’s Quilt?

I know it can be a little overwhelming trying to decide what size quilt to make for your little one. You want to make something that he or she can enjoy for years, but does it make sense for a 2-year-old to use a twin-sized quilt?

My opinion? It’s totally up to you! There are no rules as to what size quilt your child should use. If you want to make them a quilt they can use into their teen years, then I would definitely recommend making a twin-sized quilt. 

However, if you want to make them a new quilt every few years, I think a throw-sized quilt would be a perfect size for a little one. Of course, if you are making a quilt for a baby and want a crib-sized quilt, then a throw-size would be too large for a crib.

Here is a rundown of the different sizes I mentioned:

  • Crib– they can range between 30”x46” through 36”x50” depending on your crib.
  • Throw– My favorite dimensions for a throw are around 50”x60”. Not too big, not too small, perfect for snuggles.

Twin– should be around 70”x90”.
