Penny Lane Crib Quilt
This went together in one day. The inspiration was Kathleen Tracy's Scrap Squares Doll Quilt. I cut out the blocks and then measured them. Odd size - 5 3/4 inches, but so what. I cut 2 inch sashing and matched the length to the 5 3/4. Corner stones were 2 inches square.
I used a sashing method that was different from my
usual. I added sashing and corners to each block, and then put them together in rows. It worked great - until the last row when I stopped paying attention and managed to get a couple blocks reversed. rip rip rip
I decided on a 3 inch border so that the quilt would not be any longer than 42 inches and the back could be one whole width of fabric. I like the soft colors. Not sure it's bright enough for a baby quilt, but it sure is cute.
