Here is the pattern for the Framed Block Quilt.  I have included photos to help make it easier for you to make.  This is a pattern for a smaller square size than the original one pictured on my first blog.Enjoy!

Baby Size Easy Framed One Patch Quilt Instructions

This quilt will be approximately 37” x 45”
You will need:
6 coordinating fabrics ½ yard of each (the pictured quilt is made with Penny Lane Fabrics by Riley Blake.
Backing, approx 40” x 48”
Batting, approx 40” x 48”
Binding (I usually make my own with the leftover fabric) or you can purchase ready made.
1 Rotary Cutter
1 Cutting Mat
1 Cutting Ruler

30 5” squares (6 of each fabric)
60 2”x5” strips (10 of each fabric)
60 2”x 8” strips (10 of each fabric)

When you have finished all your cutting take each square and pick one of
the coordinating fabrics framing strips. Put each square with 2 short
framing strips and 2 long framing strips in a pile. Continue till you have
used all your squares and strips.
When you have matched all the squares to the strips you are ready to
begin sewing. Take one square and with right sides together pin the short
framing strips to each side and sew a 1/4” seam. Press Open.

Next take your your long framing strips and pin them right sides together to
your squares sides. Sew a 1/4” seam. Then Press Open.

Continue sewing all your squares in this manner. Once you have
completed all 48 Squares you are ready to sew your squares into rows.

Lay out your squares into rows that are pleasing to your eye. Use 6
squares for each row. You will end up with 8 rows of 6 squares. Sew your
squares together with a 1/4” seam. Press.

Now line up your completed rows matching the seams together and sew
with a 1/4” seam.
Once all your rows are sewn together your quilt top is finished, you can
add your batting, backing, then quilt and bind. I used free motion quilting
but you can use any technique you like.

Here is the completed quilt!
