Holiday Baby Quilt

The donation November baby quilts are in a holiday theme.  And here's mine.

I don't have a name for the pattern.  The instructions are ever so simple.  Cut 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles from two fabrics and 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectanges from a third fabric.  If your fabrics have a direction, like the snowmen, note which way is up.

Sew smaller rectangles to the top of one group of larger rectanges, using a 1/4" seam.  Your block should then measure 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".  Sew smaller rectangles to the bottom of the other group of larger rectanges.  Sew horizontal rows together first, alternating patterns.  And then, sew the rows together, once again alternating patterns.  That's it.
