Sam {a baby quilt tutorial}

This is another one of those quilts I made to use up some cute backing fabric. I wanted something simple that would go with the cars and firetrucks, and the red and blue prints were already pulled for another project. This one is very similar to Benny, with different color placement.  As long as you're working with even numbers, the two colors will form an easy checkerboard.

For a 32" square quilt, you'll need to cut the following:

16 -- 4 1/2" white squares
96 -- 2 1/2" red squares
96 -- 2 1/2" blue squares

Alternating red and blue squares, piece the 2 1/2" squares into strips of two and four squares, two for each block. Press. 

Sew a two square strip to each end of a background square. Press.

Sew four square strips to the other two edges of the background square. Press. 

Assemble the finished blocks into four rows of four blocks each. Quilt and bind. 

If you do make this quilt, I'd love it if you linked 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.

How is Sam different than Benny -- besides color, that is? What am I missing?
