Perfect! I've been racking my brain trying to figure out a pattern to use for a toddler's carry-along blankie and this will be a great pattern to use up my leftover scraps from other projects!

My mom, sister, and I had our girls sewing get-together today and we each made this quilt. Thanks for the great pattern!

Thank you! I was having trouble finding a candy bar pattern that I really liked (and that didn't require a ton of extra fabric) until this one!
