I spy baby quilt

I was browsing around on www.flickr.com as usual, and I noticed two or three quilts made with this simple pattern. It's just rows of blocks with horizontal strips. And I wondered how many juvenile prints I had. Recently I had purchased some fat quarters with cute cat designs. Well, I discovered that I could round up about 40 different fabrics in my stash. And I didn't even look in the big storage box that I keep in the closet! After I cut out 35 six inch blocks, I decided that I had enough to make a baby quilt. Now, I have no particular baby in mind. But there are some young people in the family who might produce one one of these days. Or I might give it to a charity. Anyhow, this is the easiest pattern, as there are really no seams that need to be exactly matched. And it need not be made into a baby quilt. I should think that the pattern could be used to show off any good fabric collection. I do have a batt and some backing material. So, I have to pin baste this later.

I made my grandson one very similar to this for his first birthday and he still loves it. Sometimes we get it out and talk about the squares and tell stories about some of them. Great job.
