Flashback

In August of 2014 I started making these blocks from an article in the AQ magazine about one of Gwen Marston's quilts. I stopped because I had to pack to move into this house (which I did in October 2014).  The other day, after finishing the black and white Slashed Squares, I was looking around and noticed the box full of fabrics I had set aside for this quilt. Some creams with bright colors on them, and a jelly roll of violet and green batiks, along with some other coordinating strips. 

The blocks are 6-1/2" square, and I think these will make a lovely baby quilt.

Lovely with the bright splashes across each square.

I agree - a wonderful concept for a baby quilt ... Yes!

It will definitely make a lovely quilt - of any size!

This looks like a lot of fun, and much more interesting than a "typical" baby quilt. I do have a technical question. Does this become a grainline challenge? How do you keep it all flat?

Yes, they look cute and perfect for a baby quilt. I have some of the tea bag fabric in my stash. Nice to see how it cuts up.
