    This is a photo of my BFF and the baby quilt top we made over the weekend. Her son and DIL picked the colors (its for their coming baby). We tried to change their minds about the brown but they said this is what they want.
    We used the "Not your Grandmother's Tumbling Block" pattern by Marci Baker and it went together very fast.

    Love this pattern but never have tried it. Looking at it I can not seem to see how this is done. Noticed you might have the same sewing machine like I have, iron sewing machine with top that lifts up and has plastic cams that go in for designs. Marge in FL

    I love it, including the colors. I've seen so much brown with baby quilts, that I've learned to like it.

    Really? I guess I haven't paid attention. We wanted the brown to be a dk cream or maybe a tan. But they liked the brown.

    Yes Marci's pattern is fun. We almost did the traditional pattern but decided to try Marci's. I'll never do the traditional again.

    I like the color choice and the pattern. I am working on one like this, only king size, with a group. All we have done so far is get some of the sections cut out ready to assemble.

    Thank you for sharing the pattern! I knew there had to be an easier way.
