Military baby quilts

This is the first of three baby girl quilts I'm quilting for some deserving Mommies and their baby girls, who's husband's/Daddies are in Iraq. There is actually a design in the madness of little squares. Can you see it? Its a type of design that is called a step pattern, and its the easiest form of creating Celtic art. I learned about it in Craft magazine that our friend Scott & Shana got me for Christmas....I love the magazine!!! There are 196 three inch squares, 14 x 14. The back will be a cream colored soft minky with little hearts.

I am also making one boys quilt and that will be a sock monkey quilt with all the sock monkey fabric I have it should go pretty quickly.
