Let's Make Baby Quilts! {2/7/14}

Need to get a baby quilt finished in a hurry? With only two fabrics to cut and no decisions to make about color placement, two color quilts go together quickly. Or they're a handy way to use up a yard of fabric -- two, if you make the backing match! 

I made Marilyn a few months back, but didn't take pictures of the process because I didn't realize how much I'd like the results. This week, I cut and pieced a nearly identical top and took the pictures, so now there's a tutorial

I designed this two color quilt using vintage sheets and my AccuQuilt Go! a few years back, so it doesn't have a cute baby name. But there is a video showing how to make it. 

Or you can do the same block, change the color placement and get a completely different effect...

Let's Make Baby Quilts Linky Party Rules: 

Link directly to your post or specific Flickr photo. Your post can be about a baby quilt that's finished, or in progress, or you can be writing about what you have planned, but it's got to be about baby quilts. While we're still gathering steam, you're welcome to link to baby quilt posts that aren't brand new, but please don't submit the same post or picture more than once. I'd love it if you linked back to my site, either with a text link or the Let's Make Baby Quilts! button

They are great baby quilts, anything that I can just use 2 colors helps me along. The tutes were great and love your first video.
