A Baby Quilt in Raspberry Scraps

It's so quick and fun when the cut-out squares are waiting in a basket. Then it's just a matter of picking a color to work with, and joining up pairs, then doubling and doubling them til there are lots of strips of eight squares.


Then once there are enough, making four big blocks. And setting them in muslin strips, and then backing them with a sweet cherry print from the stash.


This one's heading into the shop.

I really like it - I was just thinking of making a baby quilt of squares, too; a simpler one than your pretty thing.

Isn't that beautifully cheerful though! Lovely! Some special little baby girl will look just darling sitting on that and intently examining the colorful squares. Beautiful!
