Hideaway Quilt

I was so excited when Fat Quarter Shop invited me to participate in AGF Stitched with Kimberly!  When I began working on the project my thought was to use this beautiful fabric and make my new granddaughter who was due April 1, 2018 a grand quilt.

These blocks are super easy for a beginner and the quilt pattern is available for free.
