DWMonday ~ Playing with Blocks

There seems to be a baby boom at church lately and I can’t keep up! I need a boy quilt asap. I had an idea for a block that could be made from two ten inch squares and I tried out my idea last week. I ended up with 18 blocks. Now I’m playing with layouts. 


The blank spaces in the layouts above would be filled in with plain blocks. I wish I had more of this dotted fabric. I really need more blocks. Maybe some solids would work. 

Back to the design wall.

Have a great day!

    However you add additional blocks this will be a great quilt for a baby boy, or a baby girl for that matter! Hope you can find some more fabric to work with what you’ve started.
