Let's Make Baby Quilts! {week 6}

Do you use triangles in your baby quilts? Just a few of them can add a lot of zing without too much extra effort.

If you make snowball blocks, you don't even have to deal with actual triangles -- you stitch and flip and get the look of triangles without the fuss.

Or you can go all out and throw caution to the wind -- this baby quilt has lot of little triangles and lots of big triangles made up of little triangles. I've made two almost identical quilts. Extra Scrappy Pinwheels is a free pattern here on my blog.

Let's Make Baby Quilts Linky Party Rules:

I don't want to overwhelm everyone with a huge list of rules, but I do want this linky party to stay on the topic of baby quilts. They can be for donation, or for your own baby, or just because you think they're cute and want them in your sewing room, but they've got to be baby quilts. Link directly to your post or specific Flickr photo. Your post can be about a 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 related posts that aren't brand new, but please don't submit the same post 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.

Your baby quilts are delightful! I have a couple in the works for Operation Homefront, but no pictures yet! Thanks for the ideas.

Snowballs and 9 patches are 2 of my favorite blocks - always love that layout! Big yes to using triangles in any kind of quilt!
