    I recently taught a class in Oshkosh Wisconsin at their Quilting Expo. The name of the class was, "Do You See What I See?" I asked the group for photos and suggestions for using 5" squares in their quilts.

    I wanted to thanks everyone who sent photos. I put together a simple pattern and thought I would share the photos here. It is very effect and very simple. Ignore the white lines between the mock up of the blocks. This was just so I could show how the blocks were put together.

    The measurements on the strips are 2" X 5" and 2" X 6 1/2" and the block is a 5" square. The third picture shows the rotation of the blocks. To make the quilt wider, just add more blocks in the same rotation. To make longer, just add more rows.

    This is a quick and fun child's quilt. I will add a couple of other pictures, too.

    Here are a couple of more quilts from the same pattern.

    The first was made from a ladies' clothing. I get orders for a fair number of these quilts and this pattern works great.

    The second is kid's prints again and surrounded with a bright green fabric. This is all the same piece of fabric in a hand dye fabric.

    Enjoy and if you have any questions, please ask.

    I also bookmarked this as I've been looking for a quick quilt to make using charm squares. Mine are 4 inch but I think they'd work as well for the baby quilt I have in mind.

    I just wanted to comment on using buttons on baby quilts.
    Buttons should never be used on a baby quilt. A definite choking hazard. Also rag quilts shouldn't be given to babies because of all the 'threads' are also choking hazards.
