Raggedy Ann and Andy Baby Quilt

This is another baby quilt I made with the fabric left over from my niece's quilt.  This is another one that you can whip up in a hurry if you need a quick baby gift.  The whole quilt consists of four-patch blocks alternated with larger squares. 

I'll have to go back and find my notes to figure out how much of each fabric I used, but you'll need 3 fabrics - a dark, medium and light.  Make 32 four-patch blocks using the dark and medium fabrics.  Then you'll need 32 squares of a light large print or focal fabric.  Alternate the 4-patch and large square blocks as shown and sew into rows, then sew the rows together.  (Of course press seams in alternating directions.)

Then all you need to do is make your quilt-sandwich with the quilt top, batting and backing.  Quilt as desired and add binding.  Voila!  Your quilt is done. :o)
