What a joy to make. It was for my 2nd great neice. She lives very far away, so checking out the colors of her room was impossible. So I just found fabrics I thought a little girl might like. It turns out, they coordinate perfectly with the colors in her room.
The simplicity of the design and large patches make it perfect for highlighting fun fabrics or colors. Use it as a toddler or youth quilt, or even a good sized play mat.
It makes a perfect beginner's project or a quick last-minute gift. Just add more rows and columns to make it any size you need!

My mother taught me to sew when I was 8 - doll clothes by hand, then she moved me on to her old Singer. Home Ec in the 7th grade solidified sewing as part of what makes me who I am. Interestingly, the school had a room full of treadle machines!
Throughout the years, clothing and home decor were my thing. Cutting a beautiful piece of fabric into little pieces and sewing them together again didn't make sense. But when my first great-niece was born, I made my first quilt for her and was hooked!
As a new quilter, I couldn't find designs that were easy enough, so, I got design software and started tinkering. Now that I am retired, I pretty much just quilt, design quilts, and line dance. My charity work is for Quilts of Valor - check them out at www.qovf.org. I'm not a pattern publishing house. I just love simple, traditional quilt designs that use only a few colors. Thanks to Craftsy.com, I can share them with you. I hope you enjoy them.
