    I have 3 SBS and 3 SB Sams that were hand appliqued to make into a baby quilt. I know there needs to be at least 9 blocks, so what would you do? And how would you set them?

    You could alternate with solid squares and then do some pretty quilting in the solid squares. Maybe even a SBS motif.

    Why not do a 3 by 4 block setting with snowball blocks in between?

    The quilt in your Avatar has six blocks. Could you not use that pattern with sashing & borders to get it to the desired size?

    I didn't even think of that!

    Thanks for the suggestions. Trying the different layouts is going to make this unique.

    I recently had the same problem - only 6 blocks, and wanted a 3x3 setting. Here is what I did:

    Who says you have to have 9 blocks? You can use any number your little heart desires!!
