    I use a simple one that looks like a checkerboard when finished. Measures 37 X 42. You use 2 different fabrics, one focus and complementary. Cut 3 strips - 6" by WOF of each fabric. Make a strip set (alternating them) with all 6 strips. Press seams all one direction. Fold in half then cut 7 strips- each 6" wide. Lay out your strips so it forms a checkerboard design. Sew strips together. Add a 2" border around the outside. Add batting and backing. Sew around outside leaving and opening to turn. Turn, press and stitich around the outside. You can use yarn or crochet thread and tie it or topstitch crosswise or however you wish to quilt it. Quick and easy. I also have made the pinwheel one with prairie points which is very cute too. Good luck!

    I have made several of Jenny's Self binding Baby Blanket. They are quick & easy but NOT a quilt.

    This one uses a charm pack, 1 1/4 yard bg fabric, plus binding and backing and measures 42 x 42. Goes together very quickly.

    I just made one like this one. It uses a two charm packs (one white, one patterned) and comes out about 32 x 40. I did not round the corners on mine though. Super cute and that modern look young mothers like so much.

    Here's what the quilt in the tutorial looks like:

    Sew 20-25 WOF strips together. Cut 1/3 of the piece, and add a solid piece about 15" wide. Sew the 1/3 piece back on. Applique a design to match the baby's room.
    Quilters never die, they just go batts.

    This is a baby quilt I made a few years ago. I chose 5 or 6 fabrics, I bought about a yard each but used less than that. I just cut some WOF strips in various sizes from each fabric & fussed with the order till I liked it & sewed them together. It probably took me longer to pick out the fabric than to put it togethdt, lol

    This was another baby quilt I made without a pattern - it really was easy. I bought 1/4 or 1/8 yd of various black / white / grey fabrics (some may have been fat quarters) then cut some wide & some skinny & then some red strips and this is what happened
