    Strip quilt pattern for a baby blanket for my nephew

    Here's a quick and easy quilt to make with 2 1/2" strips. I had an orphan star block, so I put that in the middle. It only has a flannel back, so it's soft, flexible, and there's not much quilting.

    I love that! It's so happy and fun. Did you follow a pattern or 'wing it' on your own?

    Thanks for the comments!
    SBG, I winged it. Just make stuff up as I go along.
    Jane Quilter, The center is 12 1/2" with 2 1/2" strips around it. So the strip blocks are 8 1/2". It must have finished at 48" square. (It's been a while since I made it...) It was a bit too big for the WOF of the flannel, so I had to piece the back. I suppose it would be more convenient to not go bigger than the WOF if you make it for a baby quilt. Strip blocks are easy enough to trim down to a smaller size-- unless you are concerned that all the strips are the same width.

    Kool Idea. This would make a super "I Spy", quilt. Lots of things for baby to look at. BrendaK

    Wonderful scrappy quilt! Doesn't look too "easy" to me, though. LOL

    Lots of cheery things for baby to look at, and a clever use of an orphan block.
