A dear friend is moving and I hope she snuggles this blanket in her new home in Washington. I hope someday it snuggles her baby. Thank you, my friends for helping me make it!
I love how it turned out. Just in time!

I am indebted to Teriney for helping me with this square for Kristin! I found plenty of grey but could find no mustard and she saved the day!

This was a fun square! I'm catching up!! I have to admit that some of the instructions didn't seem to quite match the picture. I would get confused whether it was supposed to be 1.5 or two. Oh and the dark orange is orange, not red!

I have a slight love affair with polka dots! I'm naturally attracted to them. So I'm using them in this pattern.
Once all the corners are trimmed, arrange the set of 4 like this. Sew together.
Square it off. Repeat 3 more times.
Here's what you need:
Kona white fabric
Polka dot fabric. Please have the base color and white dots, or white base and single color dots. Stay away from multi color dots. Thanks. Here's some examples. Most colors are welcome, just stay away from dark jewel tones. I do like navy, black and gray for dark colors,
Cut 8, 5 inch squares of Kona white
Pick 4 colors and cut 2, 5 inch squares of each.
Pair up a white and a color right sides together. Draw a diagonal line from top left to bottom right.
Using the line as your 1/4 guide sew on both sides of the line and cut in half on the line.
Open the two squares and iron seam to the colored side.
Trim the corners
Once all 4 color squares are done arrange the blocks like this
Thanks ladies. Let me know if you are in need of fabric, I'm happy to send some.
Also, I will be getting a tutorial up for my block in the next few days. Think polka dots!

I am convinced this is a real diagnosis. The last time I was this behind we were working on shari's paper piecing square. Apparently I have issues with paper piecing.
Mom and I thought we were being so smart to do this together, however the result was we ran out of mom's fabric. That was the first time we discovered our colors were slightly different!!!! So I had half a square that I couldn't finish and had to start over. We sent back the pieces I had made with my square and the fabric in case you want to make another out of that color scheme, Nicole. It's halfway done!
I also want to thank you sweet friends for helping to make this darling blanket for my new babe! It's beautiful and it is our special work blanket where she rests and plays when she goes to work with me! I love it and I am so touched that you took the time to do this!!
