    Okay, so someone mentioned that they like to see the process that other people take. I started a baby quilt this week so I thought I would photo document the process..

    This is not a tute so it's not step by step instructions, just a little something to show how I got there.

    I didn't think about taking pictures before I started, so here is my already cut pile.

    next I took those long strips labeled "F" and "G" and sewed them together. To make a the long rectangle under this new piece "D".

    I put piece "D" face down on the first part and drew a line corner to corner. Sewed down the line and cut the excess off. Pressed the seam.

    So now I have a bigger unit that I am going to put new piece "B" on top of.

    Same process. Put "B" on there face down. Drew the line corner to corner and sewed. Cut the excess off and pressed the seam again.

    Okay, So I'm still "growing" this same unit.

    Now, I am adding piece "A". This one is not a diagonal cut. I just layed it on the unit and sewed the side seam.

    Okay, this completes the first unit of the quilt called "Unit 1". This is what it looks like opened up and pressed flat.

    I did each of the above steps 4 times. So I have 4 of these unit 1 pieces ready now.

    I cut the pieces over the weekend and I just did these first 4 unit 1's while watching American Idol.. and they took about an hour and 15 minutes.

    I'm sorry to say that I will have to stop here tonight because that is all I have sewn!! I will try to do the "Unit 2" block tomorrow night during Idol and post afterwards.

    Not only do I have a 1/4 of my quilt made already I have all of these cute little off cuts ready for something else. I just sewed the off cuts as they came off and set them aside since they are not needed for this quilt top.

    WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP and get to sewing! I can't wait to see how this turns out. Looks simple and quick so far.

    May have to make a quilt soon and this may be the one.

    ETA Would you post the sizes of each section? Thanks

    I know what you mean "real work" keeps getting in the way of my sewing. And my to do list gets longer every time I drop by the board. I cant wait to see this finished.

    Okay, ladies I am ready to show you the rest! I'm sorry work got in my way today. Unfortunately I have to make money to pay for my nasty habit....fabric!!

    I don't think I can post the cutting sizes since this is a pattern out of a book and it is Copyrighted. I will post the info for the book though and maybe your library will have a copy and you can make any of them!!

    I will start with the pics on the next post.

    Okay, I am going to make Unit 2 now. It is very similar to Unit 1 last night. But kind of opposite.

    I am going to start by putting piece "E" onto piece "G" and doing the corner to corner thing again.

    Mark it, sew down the line, cut the excess and press open.

    Next I am going to add piece "C" (the long strip) to that set.
    Just sewing down the side seam and pressing open afterwards.

    I am adding piece "B" to that set now. Once again doing the diagonal mark, sewing on the line, cutting the excess and pressing open.

    We are just building a bigger unit again like last night.

    Now I will add that biggest piece again to complete Unit 2. This is some more of "A". I will just sew up the side seam and press open.

    This is all of unit 2. I did it 4 times just like last night. So now I have 4 of Unit 1 and 4 of Unit 2 and that completed the main part of my quilt top. Now I just have to cut it into shape.

    It will start to look like something very soon!!

    Ok, so now I am just going to lay Unit 2 face down on top of Unit 1. And I am marking corner to corner just like it is a big quilt square.

    And once again I am going to sew down the line, cut off the excess (which is the not whole side) and press open.

    This is where the magic happens and turns into a BIG BLOCK. It is 1/4 of my quilt top.
