    I am making a pp sailboat baby quilt for my dd step mother in law. I sent her a picture....pp sailboats..stripe sales..green boats..blue background with stars.. pale yellow shashing...green dot inner border.. stripe outer border.
    She thinks the stripe outer border makes the quilt to busy! She wants a solid blue border.. No light blue fabric that matches. I got royal blue like one of the stripes in the sails. I think it is to dark. She lives out of state. I am going to send her a piece of all the fabrics so she can see what they look like in person.
    My daughter said she was high strung and out there! If I ever learn how to post pics I will post it. This is my first try at pp.

    The last post (tutroial) for "Slanted Stars" looks as easy as it gets. Instead of white you could use color. Would be a cute baby quilt, I think.

    Love this quilt! You said that for the 4 patch you cut 6.5 inch squares and the same size for the squares. Do you then quarter the squares for the 4 patch?

    Try a tube quilt. Search here for the instructions. Really easy and looks great.

    i am bad..not the right measurements for the 4-patch
    if finishes at 6.5 to match the squares.

    the 4 patch squares or strips were cut t are 3.5

    make strips, that is the easy way..

    here is a pattern to follow
