3 Stripes & You're Out!

I finished this quilt for a friend of mine who hopes to someday soon have a baby! (I'm hoping for sooner rather than later, but that's another story!) Anyway, for a simple quilt project or even a scrappy quilt project, this is a good block to do. 

1. Cut strips (the longest length of the fabric) at 2 1/2" wide.
2. Sew three strips together (hence the "three stripes")
3. Then iron down and cut the three strips at 6 1/2" or measure your width to make a perfect square. 
**Remember to square up all of your blocks to the smallest one so everything lines up!**

For my own personal thoughts - the colors in this quilt ended up being borderline "crazy"! I thought it would come out cuter in a sense, but I still like these colors of children's fabric. What do we think?
