    Hi Kate,
    Is this kind of what your talking about doing? These are 12" blocks, with sashing in between....

    I'm glad it helped! :)
    I just did a search online and found this site. I'm not sure if it's the same one that I used, but there's a lot of different ones here:

    Remember to get a 12" finished block you need to start with a 12 1/2 " block to cover seam allowance of 1/4 " on each side.

    Making a Sunbonnet quilt is like eating candy!! You can't stop at one. I've finished one and have two more tops finished waiting for borders and quilting. They're addictive!! And I don't even have G kids.

    Here's the quilt I did with transfers (I made mine from coloring book pages and a transfer pencil), the biggest tip I can share is to iron your fabric to freezer paper before you try to color on it with crayons. It makes it SOOOO much easier!!
