Do you remember this quilt? Some friends of ours just became foster parents to a beautiful little girl. I wanted to make a quilt quickly to honor this special time in their lives. While I was searching for patterns and fabric I came across 17 blocks that I didn't need for the first quilt. 16 of them made a perfect baby quilt size - 36" square. The pattern is "Easy Bake" by Cluck Cluck Sew. It's hand quilted with size 8 pink perle cotton.
For the backing I used a pretty retro kitty fabric that I had in my stash. Isn't it sweet? I encourage you to keep leftover blocks. You never know when you will need something in a jiffy. Three large blocks can be a table runner and one large block and be made into a pillow. Your time is cut in half and you have a homemade gift in hardly any time. Sew fun!
