We are using this block for our next charity quilt - using our chosen grey fabric as the centre square.

The following links show some clear instructions for making the blocks and some different layout possibilities -

Another Baby Quilt…

Thanks Kathy Q. for your hospitality this week. We had a great turnout and a few new faces which is wonderful

Kathy I. has finished a baby quilt for a boy. She was concerned at the amount of ‘girly’ florals in it, so has appliqued some cute, blue teddy bears. It looks gorgeous Kathy!
