Layer Cake Baby Quilts & Update on Jack's Basket

Whenever I have a bit of fabric leftover, I cut it into 10" squares, 5" squares, 2 1/2" strips and then finally 2 1/2" squares. A favorite quilt to make is to sort through my 10" squares and put together quilts--baby size or lap size. Here are 8 baby quilts I've put together using this style this year!!!
Not only is it fast and fun putting these quilts together, I get to use different quilting pantographs, too!!!
