Quilting

My mom is an amazing quilter, and I got this technique from her.  I probably didn't do it exactly right, but it was still fun!  First you will want to make a 9 block square.  My squares didn't match, and I am not sure if it matters or not, but I was just doing a little pillow, so I figured it would work out okay!  I cut my blocks 5x5 inches.
After sewing your blocks together, take them and cut down the middle both ways, so you will now have 4 blocks from one. 
You then take those blocks and turn rearrange them so they look something like this.  The only rule is you don't want two big blocks or two little blocks right next to each other. I only did two blocks which was plenty for this pillow. So I am thinking for a baby blanket around 8 blocks. You'll have to do the calculation for the rest :)
