I get so excited when my friends and family announce that they are going to have a baby. It means that soon I will get to see photos of squishy newborns and that I get to make a quilt. I love being able to give a handmade gift, and it is so heartwarming to know that there are precious babies wrapped up in the quilts I make.

This past July, I started working on a quilt for a new cousin who was born a few weeks ago. I can be the type of quilter who procrastinates. I can also be the type who starts a project and then pauses to start another (and another…and another…and another). For these reasons and the fact that I have 3 boys under 5, it took me until January to actually finish it.

I knew before I even picked out fabric that I wanted to use the Greek Cross block for this quilt. I had received the block instructions as part of my very first Stash Builder Box. I used the Block of the Month pattern that came in my box, but you can still get the instructions on the SBB blog.

By the time I started blogging, I had already pieced, basted, and started quilting, so I won’t be doing a step-by-step tutorial on this one, but the link above will get you to the same instructions I used.

Be sure to subscribe, though because I will have a tutorial for another sweet baby quilt coming in the next few weeks.
