it's always good to know after you've spent hours making a quilt
that it has a stamp of approval... even though the recipient
isn't my little boy (seen in the pics) i know this blanket will be loved in it's new home,
where ever that might be : )
the inspiration for this quilt comes from one of my favourite bloggers christina, over at the sometimes crafter. LOVE her blog!
HOW TO MAKE IT: the original squares measured
5" x 5", you will need 108 of these. 9 of those squares are then sewn together. those squares are then cut in the middle vertically and then horizontally to get your disappearing 9 patch blocks. 4 of those disappearing 9 patch blocks are then sewn together to make up your 12 larger nine-patch squares. i used 2 1/2" sashing strips. the finished quilt size ends up being 45" / 60".
