Baby blankets

My newfound quilty neighbour, as it turns out, travels around the world delivering compassion to some of the poorest people in the world.  We were at our local quilt shop looking for a few bits and pieces, and chatting about the baby quiltlets that I'm making for her to take on her next trip, and the very generous owner gifted her with fat quarters and yardage of flannel for this project.

She's a beginning quilter - just started sewing, and she was leaving within a few days so she asked if I'd take the flannel to get a quilt ready for the upcoming trip.

I added in some flannel I had used on other quilts, and ended up with seven quilts.  My husband is holding up the wee beauties.  Some were using HST's, using two FQ's and using the magic 8 method of making 8 HST's from one square (mark diagonals, sew 1/4" on each side of each diagonal, cut into eighths).




The others were using Anita Grossman Soloman "Supersized Nine Patch" method (http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/details.html?idx=184).  Here are some of the quiltlets!
