A quilt is a wonderful gift to give. You can make the quilt yourself, or you can get other family members to help out. A family gift is very special. You can use fabric pens to leave a special message on your square. If you don't have a quilting machine you can either quilt it by hand or even have it sent out and have someone else do the quilting for you.
For each block you want to make also cut a five-sided piece of solid fabric. Make the sides angular, not parallel. Don't make it too big or too small roughly about a ninth of the block (like a tic tac toe pattern on the muslin foundation square). It will serve as your crazy, off center middle of your design.

This is made even more special if you have the baby blanket personalized with the baby's name.
One should lay out the patches and make certain they are pleased with the design and then join them and form the patchwork. At this point the piercing can begin. For hand piercing the patches must have their right sides joined and then pinned. First of all each corner must be pinned. A small whipstitch then joins each patch. As one continues pins should be removed.
