    This is so easy to put together, and comes out looking fabulous! (Not to toot my own horn, but you don't have to make complicated blocks to make a nice baby quilt!) The blocks are cut 6" and the border is cut 3".

    I really like it and the colors, too. But, I have to say that your quilting made a simple block pattern very special.

    This is wonderful! I've been racking my brain to come up with something fairly quick for twins due next month. You would think with a substantial stash, I could come up with something, anything, but nooooooooo, not so. Having a visual like this is so helpful! Thanks for the idea!

    One of the things I keep mulling over for little kids & babies is a colorblock quilt idea. It would be fun to have some kind of base print fabric (dark blue, off-white...that has multiple tiny bits of color in it), then make all those other squares alternating solids (or mainly so) to go with the one print. It would be nice to help them with learning their colors. If you know they will be having a boy and a girl you could do the same idea, but with different main print fabric. Or make the backing the significant print. Just a thought. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to suggest this.

    I really like your idea! Thanks for suggesting it here. I might have missed it anywhere else. I'm going to try it for the next baby quilt! You could use plain solid colors or prints that read as solids, or something like Moda Marbles. . .

    I like simple, uncomplicated patterns. It's easy to put a little somedthing in a corner of off-set and have it stand out and look really special.
