Nine Patch Center Pieces or Baby Blankets...

So yup... I bought this awesome "Oh Cherry Oh!" Layer Cake by "Me and My Sister" at Sarah's shop. I am making nine patch center pieces and baby blankets. Can't get much easier than this. If you can sew a straight line, you can make these and with a cake layer... no cutting involved. You just mess with the fabrics until you have something you like. I went pretty basic for these first ones... but I am loving them. They are so bright and cheerful and pretty much ready for spring don't ya think.
For the center pieces I will just add backing in a coordinating fabric and bring it to the front for a small hemmed edge.
For the baby blanket... I think it will need to be just a little larger... so I will add a 2 1/2 to 3 inch coordinating boarder with a print in each corner... fun, fun.

Yay for Layer Cakes!
Even the ones you can't eat.
Be sure to go to Sarah's blog to check out all your options.
