  Sewing Instructions:

  1. To make one block, you will need a set of 5 matching 2 ½” x 6 ½” rectangles and a matching 2 ½” square. You will also need 4- 2 ½” neutral squares.  To begin, draw a line on the back of each of the neutral squares, connecting opposite corners.  With right sides together, place a square on one end of a colored rectangle.  Sew on the drawn line, trim the seam allowance to approximately ¼”, and press to the neutral background.

After we were finished making this quilt we had a few leftovers.  We took those leftovers and made this cute little baby quilt.  If you’d like the free printable pattern for that, follow this link.  How cute would it be to make the big quilt for a wedding present and make a baby quilt for the couple using these same fabrics.

We ended the project with one big quilt, a baby quilt and absolutely no leftovers!
