This isn't the style of baby quilt I usually make, but I was looking at all of the blue fabric I got from that Craigslist ad and wondering what I could make with cuts from just that stack and an idea started to form. This little quilt would be perfect if you want to whip something up without digging through your entire stash or if you're working with someone else's coordinated leftovers.
Start with sixteen 2 1/2" WOF strips. For each block, you'll use two 10" strips each of two different colors. (I cut each strip in half before matching them up so that each block would be different instead of making them in pairs.) Sew four alternating strips together to make a block like this one.
Cut the block into four 2 1/2" strips and rearrange them to form a sixteen patch block.
Make sixteen blocks and assemble into four rows of four. Did I mention that this quilt was quick?
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.
