What are you most proud of? These are so cozy & pretty. My g-kids love them. They get fluffier with each washing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use 3 layers of cotton, at least 2 should be flannel. Don't wash them first. Don't use scizzors for snipping use snippers. This is a good size for a security blanket (16"). Any smaller and it's not a comfort to them. Any bigger & they'll trip on it when carrying it everywhere they go.

If I may ask I am new to this but I am going to give this a try, I understand you need 3 fabrics, my question is I make the 5" sq. for all 3 fabrics and sew them together? Trying to look at your pictures to figure it out..

Sandwich your 3 5" squares together, then stitch all around leaving 1/2 (that's what I used) seam allowance. Then stitch the X from corner to corner. Then stitch your sandwiches together (wrong sides together) then snip seam allowance and was & dry

I can't believe I finally found directions for this quilt - THANK YOU so very much. I had a very dear friend that made these, but she passed before she showed me how and I didn't have one to figure it out by. Of course I fell in love with them - they are especially nice for lap quilts for the elderly (I'm almost there myself!). So thank you for the memories and for the directions, I can't wait to start.

Where do I click for this pattern

It's not a pattern. It's a rag quilt. I've posted directions several times in the comments.
