I decided this baby girl of mine is going to need a cozy blanket! This project took me like a gazillion hours, especially because I'm a beginner quilter, but I've decided it was all worth it :) It certainly isn't perfect...but that's okay because babies just poop and spit up on everything anyway.
- 1 1/3 yard minky. (The fabric I used was mixed in with all the minky fabric at Joann's, but I noticed on the bolt it is technically called "furry fleece." But it feels like minky...so I'm calling it minky.)
- Unfortunately, I am not entirely sure how much fabric I used for the top. The fabric was actually purchased months ago. Sooo...6 different fabrics that will get you an approx 45 by 45 in quilt top!

- Quilt Basting Spray (Optional)
A Hopefully Helpful Tutorial:
First, cut 121 squares that measure 4.5" by 4.5" (I know, I know...that's a lot of squares!)
Then take each square and cut them each into four triangles.
Arrange all the triangles into squares, mixing up the fabrics. Sew two triangles together to form a half square. Do this to all of your triangle pieces and then press seams towards the darker fabric. Then, take 2 half square pieces and match up the center seam. Press.
