Kelly's Baby Quilt Blocks

 There are a number of quilts that I need to get quilted
and have not had the mojo to do this.
So, instead, I keep making quilt tops.

One of my daughters' college roommates is expecting
her first child in September,
so a quilt was started for this new one.
I saw this pattern in the American Quilters magazine and 
thought it would be perfect for a boy.

 As I was cutting the pieces, I decided to make
a small change to the pattern.
Instead of using all one color and making a ring,
I added another color and made it a bit different.

These are the blocks I ended up with for this quilt.
I made 20 for a baby quilt size,
shown below.
They are not in any kind of order yet,
just added to the wall as I finished them.

Then, as I often do, I turned my camera and took
a photo on an angle.


I really like this layout!

Here are most of the blocks turned on point.
I am going to remove two of the vertical rows
to make it a bit smaller and cut those
blocks in half for the setting triangles.
Again, the blocks are not in their final order.
It will percolate on the wall for a bit,
so I can be sure this is the design I want.
I will play with them to get them arranged
in a pleasing way and get them sewn together.
Now, I REALLY need to get a couple of tops quilted!
Happy Quilting!

A big "YES" to on-point. Love your addition of color to the crosses, too.

Your quilt photos are being Stolen. Scanners are posting them on fb.

I love the on point blocks. They appear to be spinning. Looking forward to seeing this one finished.

Beautiful that will keep a baby happy and looking at the colors during tummy time.
