I found this wonderful tutorial online http://neverenoughhours.blogspot.com/2010/08/fat-quarter-baby-quilt-tutorial.html a while ago and had been wanting to make this.  I'm not much of a quilter but I wanted to make a blanket for the new baby that was born into the host family that I stayed with in Mexico this summer. Her name is Yulisa. So i bought some fat quarters and went to work. I did not use batting as it does get rather warm down there.  Also, a member from my church is taking it down in her suitcase and I didn't want to take up too much room in her suitcase..

Now, I have to admit, I ended up putting the blocks together wrong. I was in the middle of the first block and my husband decides he wants to make a run to the local convenience store for a little snack. I went with. Well, when I got back I figured I had it right and just went to town. I just noticed I put them together wrong, but oh well. It's still vibrant and lively.

Is it "too" lively? LOL!  Grin
