Approved submission
Here’s my submission for the quilted baby blanket bb.
Finished out, it’s just a bit over 30”x30.” Made from cotton- the back is vintage cotton print from a hand-me-down stash, the yellow prints are cotton fat quarters, and the batting is cotton as well. My blocks are 4 rectangles laid in alternating directions, and then all assembled together in rows, then the rows sewn together diagonally. I wish I knew what this pattern is called. I know I’ve seen it before.
I decided to go the bindless route for finishing and I really love the structure it gave the finished product.
