Big block quilts have their place... particularly when you need a baby quilt quickly. Last spring, one coworker announced the pending arrival of a new addition to her family and, when everyone started back to work in August, I found out that coworker #2 is expecting in December.
Hmmm... the joint baby shower is next Tuesday. I made coworker #1 a baby quilt during the summer.
I don't think a gift certificate for diapers is going to cut it for coworker #2... do you?
During our shop hop last Saturday, I found some Amy Butler 1/2 yd cuts on the bargain table and picked up one of each for the baby quilt.
Cut out and sewed the big blocks one afternoon... then quilted and bound (by machine) the next afternoon!
Now I just need to wrap the quilts up and I'll be ready to go! Gotta love those big block quilts...
