Default Exploding Block Baby Quilt

Someone last week posted the link to Jenny Doan's Exploding Block tutorial. Along in the posting someone mentioned they wondered how a baby quilt would look using this method. So I tried it! I needed to make a baby girl quilt, had lots of pinks in my stash and was looking for something fun and quick. I started with a pinwheel block center and added on (Exploded it) from there. I added 5 rounds to the pinwheel and it measured 32" square before I added two sashings. Now it's 42" square and ready to sandwich and quilt! This was a really fun and easy top to make! If you're going to try it be sure to square off after each addition of fabric and I think 5 rounds was enough so quilt was still manageable. Here's my pic:

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

That came out really well. Leave it to Jenny. Love your version. The Mom and Baby should be thrilled.

Very nicely done. It will be a treasure to some little girl. Gives me a plan for both girl & boy baby quilts. Or even a lap quilt.
