I changed it up a bit as my bricks are smaller. They are 4.5 x 2.5 and the frames are 4.5 x 1.5. Each little block finishes at 4.5 inches square.
The greens are left over bits from this quilt. Instead of cleaning up from making that quilt, I thought it would be just as easy to make another quilt. And the mess is still there! I already had a baggie of the black strips in a drawer.
You could use a jelly roll and a honey bun to make it.
SewCalGal from California and Kaholly from Texas are having a quilt drive. They are asking for baby quilts that will be given to soon to be born babies whose daddies are away serving our country.
I copied it from one on Michelle's bog. Mine finishes at about 39 inches square. I used 2.5 inch squares in my 9 patches. Gotta love making a quilt when you do not have to piece the backing! The border is extra from a backing.
This quick strippie quilt from Mollie's website will also be going to Texas. The dog fabric is left over from a backing. I have enough dog flannel to make another one.
I am enjoying making these baby quilts, they go together easily and I am able to use up some leftover fabrics from other quilts. A win/win for me and the babies.
When I gift quilts made with flannel I do not wash them as they can sometimes look used.

Goals for 2013
1) I am planning on staying out of quilt shops - there is not one thing I need. No patterns, no thread, no batting, no fabric, no rotary blades, no rulers, no gadgets, nothing. If I don't have it then I do not need it. There isn't any reason for me to visit a shop in town or online. I guesstimated how much fabric I have and I will never come close to using it all. The folks who get my quilts don't know if the fabric is brand new or 6 years old, they only know that someone out there in the world cares enough about them to make them a quilt. I will be unsubscribing to all emails from quilt stores, if I don't see it I won't be tempted.
Amendment to Goal #1 - I will be going to the Paducah Quilt Show in April with our new quilting cousin and I will be bringing home some fabric/patterns/etc... That will be the only quilting shopping I plan on doing this year.
3) Make 12 quilts for Ronald's House
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
4) Finish 5 quilts that I have already started
1 - 2 - 3
Other finished quilts
1- 2 - 3 - 4 - 5
