Thought it could be hung on a wall until the baby was older and out of a crib.

I used straight line quilting in each of the white areas, thanks to everyone who made suggestions on the quilting when I posted the flimsy!

We feathered the blocks with a feather theme outside border. Hope you enjoy the pictures and they give you some ideas.

1. Cut all fabrics (except sashing, see below #8) in 4 1/2" strips. This works well for scraps, FQ and yardage.

3. Your center square should be the same as

It was not really FAST like I wanted. But I had fun, got in some free motion practice, used up some bits of stash, and since I went with a 4x5 block grid but intended on 5x5, I have five

Hope this helps everyone whose been asking for more information. Glad you all have enjoyed my quilt. I will attach a copy of it as well so

draw an x on stacked squares right sides facing each other and sew on both sides of lines. Cut in half both ways then on lines and you have 8 HST that need just a small bit of squaring up.

I hope the file opens for you all, if not can someone please compress
