I cut out little squares and sewed them on in an argyle pattern (I was short on one color - so I had to make something up) If you do just straight squares with an X and no fancy stitching you could do one in about 5 hours start to finish. It takes me about 8 hrs or so with the decorative stitching. The one with the different sized pieces is a different story. I still haven't fighured out an efficient way to do those. Thanks for the compliments everyone. I've been thinking about selling them at our farmer's market. How much do you think I should ask? (keep in mind where I live we have TWO high-end baby stores, with $150.00 baby jeans and such) thanks!
