"HI" Quilt

Or at least that's what it looks like to me. You'll see!!! Do you remember this pic?

Yummy!

Pretty, huh? Well, when I saw them, I knew exactly what I was going to do with them (probably because I fell in love with the very same quilt at my LQS and couldn't get it out of my head)! I knew it would just be perfect for either my little niece or grandbaby for naps someday. Well, I went to town cutting and piecing.

If you're interested, the middle squares are 2 1/2 inches each and the outside strips 6 1/2 inches. Easy peasy! You'll see in a minute how to put them together. This is the simplest quilt ever!!!




And when you're all done. This is what you get:

Girly Girl Quilt or "HI"

But what makes this quilt so special is the yummy yellow minky backing with very thin batting in the inside. It drapes like a dream!!
