Ribbon Baby Quilt

here is a cute and pretty easy baby quilt. my amazing quilting friend made one and after i saw how cute it was i had to make one too. she got the idea from watching an episode of Fons & Porter on KBYU. i have searched the site to find instructions but have not been successful.

here is quick run down of what i did....

*the squares big squares are 8 1/2 inches and the smaller squares are 4 1/2 inches

*sew 4 smaller squares together to make a big square

*lay alternating squares on top of each other wrong sides together. by doing thins one side will have the seams facing outward.

*to cover those seams up top stitch ribbon down (i used 1 inch ribbon). i sewed the seams that are vertically first then horizontally.

*bind it how ever you would like

it really is pretty simple and goes pretty fast once you know what you are doing. i have a few friends having babies in the next few months so guess what they are getting!!!!
