DO I HAVE SOMETHING FABULOUS TO SHOW YOU!

You guessed it.....got sidetracked....

making these blocks.  I just couldn't help myself.  Looks time consuming doesn't it...what if I told you that this technique makes this a cake walk!
 
Got ten squares out of one jelly, make a nice baby quilt.
Here is the block again but made with just four of the same fabrics.
I do hope you watch the video...  You will be so surprised how easy this block is to make.

Missouri Star Quilt Company has some of the best quilting videos out there.  Just about every day
I check their store to see their deal of the day...you can get some amazing deals.

Now....do I want to get my go cutter out and cut up the rest of the blue fabric or do I sit and finish the design I have been working on?  What to do...what to do?????

My five fat quarter giveaway is the post below this one.

I love it, Barb. It does look quick and easy. I have done their pinwheels before and love the technique so may have to try this one too.

I like the dark blue strips. I saw that video the other day. What a great idea. I also like her strip tube videos.

So beautiful. Looks like a fun design for Jelly Rolls and probably a great design for stash busting too! I definitely want to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Barb, it is so easy getting side tracked in quilting, I do it everyday.That is why I try not to get on all these blogs. I love the blue and I have a baby quilt to do so a good Idea. I love watching the videos from Missouri Quilts and watch them all the time. Another reason I don't get anything done. Trying out the granny square fad to see if they are easy. Hugs Sandra
