I started by sorting the block colors and designs. These pink and yellow hearts seemed to just want to play together, so they went together with a small floral lattice with purple cornerstones. The backing and probably the binding will be the same floral as the lattice.
Next came the sagey seafoam green family of blocks. The pink sashing fabric has tiny little purple flowers and seafoamy leaves, so it seemed to work. This one will be backed and bound (probably) with that purple check.
The blue hearts seemed like a no brainer. I love a gingham and this tiny blue one was just too cute with the blocks...then I ran out...so I added in a bit of that small floral from the first quilt in the four corners. This one will be backed with the larger blue check, but I haven't decided on a binding...blue, perhaps?
So...a pile of blocks, four baby/crib sized quilts to donate to the newborns of soldiers at Ft. Leonard Wood. It's so nice for the new parents, especially for those that are stationed so far from home when their babies are born.
Now, off to get them quilted so that I can take them to MO with me in March!
