Winter Baby Quilt

I finished the top of my first Jingles flannel quilt - Winter Baby - it is a play on words as my greanson is Liam Winter.  I haven't mastered taking pics of the full quilt - tips are appreciated.
I used the charms to create 4-patch blocks then laid them out 4 across and 4 down.
I want to break up all the little squares so I removed 4 blocks and inserted a plain block.

The 4 x 4 layout was only about 36" square and I wanted a quilt that would last into toddler naptimes. 
To make it rectangular I used the four blocks I removed to create offset cornerstones.  I like the result.  Next step is to piece the back - large brick path design.


  1. Very cute! Looks like you decided not to do a rag quilt. How are you going to quilt this? I love the name "Winter Baby"
