Cozy Baby Quilts

Robot Snowball Blocks (4 meet at diamonds)
 I volunteered to co-ordinate the Comfort Quilt Committee for my Quilt Guild this year. I have not done as much as I hoped to (yet). We are trying to make a large batch of baby quilts to donate to a local lady who provides Welcome Bundles to newborns in need. I made 2 kits in September for our Quilt Retreat. Both were made up of pre-cut pieces for snowball blocks: one with a robot focus fabric and one with pastel animals. I also cut the same yellow, blue, orange, and green squares for each kit. The ladies who went on Retreat said they were easy to do and I think they turned out great!

This quilt is a bonus made up of the leftover corners from the snowball blocks. One of the ladies made them into pinwheels and then into a nice baby quilt. I think the recipients will love these sweet little quilts!
