Pattern - searched for "layer cake and jelly roll" and found it. Basically you cut the layer cake in half and put strips on each side. You did trim it down - maybe 8.5"? - to make it square. Alternate block directions and you've got it.
Borders - none. This may be my first borderless

I used a tutorial found here: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2...vin-on-up.html
It was a quick and easy assembly. I quilted it on my Juki using my walking foot to create some straight line

With the toothbrush rug, all you are doing is tying knots and working in the shape you want practically right away.

I was playing with these leftover pieces last fall when I should have been workin' on my DGSons's Solar System quilt. When DDIL gits pregnant again I'll use these blocks & the other scraps ta make a quilt for that child.
These are just picts of the pieces so you can see how they go tagether.
The first 3 picts are of blocks already made.
This one is already trimmed

My question is how do I quilt it? I am open to ideas so please tell me yours.
I have also made a matching crib sheet in the baby zebra print.

The next one, St. Patty's wall hanging is all made on the serger except for the binding.
In one of my quilt groups we all made a Ricky Timms Convergence quilt and
