Rag Quilt Tutorial

I have been dying to sew up lots of cute baby stuff, but we are currently in the middle of a move so my sewing has slowed down quite a bit. One thing I have accomplished is a rag quilt. It was so quick and easy! I was able to put it all together in just a few days during Linnaea’s nap time. I think it is just perfect for a baby blanket 🙂

I followed THIS tutorial– the only difference is that I used 5″ squares instead of 7″ squares.

 

Don't you just LOVE those bright colors!
