I found this lovely, easy pattern at Blue Elephant Stitches. Check out this site- she makes lots of beautiful quilts and takes the nicest pictures!
I used 3 inch squares from my scrap bin- some of the neutral squares are brighter squares turned over. Sometimes if you have a medium fabric that isn't dark enough to be considered a dark, you can flip it over and have a light. I have heard of people doing this and now I know it works!
Now, I am a pretty good "piecer" but not a good "quilter." I can't hand quilt, and my machine quilting stitches are so bunched up and ugly, so I used a floral flannel for the back and no batting. It goes against everything that I know, but I stretched it on the floor, pinned front to back and "quilted" it on my machine with just the regular quarter inch foot- no walking foot. I did a criss-cross pattern and it turned out sooo good- like a professional-good.
The baby who received this lives in Florida, so it doesn't have to be warm. I see more no-batting quilts in my future!
