Ready to make another quick, two color baby quilt? Pull out your favorite color and find a dozen 2 1/2" width of fabric strips. That and some background fabric is all you'll need!
This week's baby quilt uses the same blocks as Colleena, but changing the color placement in the nine-patch blocks gives it a different look. Adding a pieced border makes it just a bit larger.
For a 34" square quilt, you'll need:
48 - 2 1/2" white squares
176 - 2 1/2" print squares (112 for blocks, 64 for pieced border)
To make the snowball blocks, place a 2 1/2" print square on each corner of a 6 1/2" background square. Sew diagonally as shown, then press open. To reduce bulk, you can trim off the extra fabric a quarter inch outside the seam line. Make 13 blocks.
Assemble 2 1/2" white and print squares into nine-patch blocks as shown. Make 12 blocks.
Lay out alternating blocks in five rows of five as shown, with snowball blocks in the outside corners. For the pieced border, piece the remaining 2 1/2" squares into four long strips (two 15 square long strips and two seventeen square long strips.) Add the shorter strips to opposite edges, press open, then add the longer strips to the remaining two edges and press open.
Quilt and bind. As always, if you make this quilt I'd love for you to send me a picture or link up to my weekly Let's Make Baby Quilts! linky party. There's a list of my free baby quilt tutorials over in the sidebar and you can find out when new ones are added by either following my blog or liking the Let's Make Baby Quilts Facebook page.
