Patchwork Pretties

I've been making these little patchwork quilts, and they are too much fun. (If you couldn't tell, since I made seven of them!) They are lap or baby quilt sized, 36" by 45". You just need 20 10" squares (I used a 1/2" seam allowance) and then enough for the backing. It's a goo way to use up some smaller pieces and really cute.

The yellow floral is from some recycled pillow cases. The little alphabet print is the focus fabric, I got it from my college sewing instructor.

I got this little cowboy print from my sewing instructor too. I love the red and grey with it, and there's also a cute star print.


The little cupcake print with this is a nice fuzzy flannel and I used it for the backing too.


The big floral and the yellow floral are both reclaimed fabrics, I totally love them. I think grey and orange and green are so pretty together.


I used a soft minty chenille for this and a cute nursery rhyme print flannel. It's really cuddly. I love the little bias floral too, so cute!


What's more fun that little guitars?


That yellow floral again, I wish I had more!

I have enough batting for one more quilt, but I can't decide what fabric to use. What do you think?
