In this section I am featuring modern baby quilt patterns that you can purchase. A lot of work goes into creating quilting patterns. So let's support those talented small business owners!  From little boys to baby girl quilts, there are a lot of great options for patterns in this section.

Triangle Jitters
Triangle Jitters by Suzy Quilt Patterns

Modern quilt patterns tend to be quite simple but feature bold large abstract shapes like this simple quilt pattern. Adding in the colors also adds to the abstract nature of this pattern.

Dessert Quilt
Dessert Quilt by Wellsprings Designs Co.

A handmade baby quilt like this one is a great gift. Feel free to compliment a simple quilt top with a fun pattern on the back.

Piece and Love
Piece and Love by Hartland Quilt Shop

Use bright colors to piece together a heart shape mixed with solid large stripes. There are so many ways this heart could be made from an ombre as shown to a solid or monochromatic style.

Northern Sky Quilt
Northern Sky Quilt by Side Lake Stitch

I love the abstract feeling to this quilt. Stripes with the diamonds look great in muted colors as seen here, but pastels or bright colors would be great with this pattern too.

Pine Sky Modern Quilt
Pine Sky Modern Quilt by Side Lake Stitch

This pattern has a bit of an optical illusion that creates an eight point star with the negative space. But I'm more drawn to the diamond like shapes created with the darker fabric.

Converge Quilt Pattern
Converge Quilt Pattern by Side Lake Stitch

Grab a cute layer cake of different colors to make this huge diamond with diamonds within pattern. This reminds me of one of those pictures that asks how many triangles can you see, but it really makes for a visually interesting baby blanket.

Perfect Placement

Although this seems like a simple patchwork quilt, the variation between the quilt blocks makes it unique. I love the difference between the blue and green squares.

Broken Arches
Broken Arches by Folkway Studio

Get a bit of a southwestern design with this adorable quilt. The colors and shapes lend this one to an abstract mountain style quilt.

Leaded Light

Natural Harmony

Modern Fans

Gift handmade quilts to a friend who is expecting with this gorgeous fan style pattern. The black and white with a pop of color are another color scheme that lends itself well to modern quilts.

A white background really sets apart this mountain style pattern. Perfect for a baby boy quilt, but in the right colors it would be great for either gender.
