Baby Quilt Finished!

Inspired by a post I saw on, which was pinned from Crazy Mom Quilts, I finished this baby quilt in a flash!  It only took me two evenings to do, and that is after the kids were in bed!  So fun and so easy! 

The finished quilt contains 24 8-inch blocks.

To construct the blocks, you need to do the following:

Cut 24 6.5-inch x 6.5-inch blocks of two or three colors of your choice.(I used scraps of various blue and pink fabrics.  Four of the blue fabrics I used the "Soft N Comfy Bubble Velour Fabric"...perfect for babies!!)

Cut 24 6.5-inch x 2.5-inch strips of background fabric

Cut 24 8.5-inch x 2.4-inch strips of background fabric

Construction of the blocks:

First sew the 6.5-inch x 2.5-inch strips to each of the colored squares.  Iron seam toward the colored block.

Second, hold the sewn block with the background strip on top.  Sew to the right side of the blocks the 8.5-inch x 2.5-inch strips to each of the colored squares.  Again, iron seam toward the colored block.

Lastly, lay out the quilt squares and sew them together making the background zigzag.


Now I am debating if I should put on a border or just leave as is.
