I am seriously in love with this pattern. Talk about easy (and I'm no pro). I could never complain about directions that don't require any pattern pieces. It's just a few simple strips of pieced squares. This would be the perfect beginning project. I used the left overs from my Quilt as you Go project and I've already cut a ton of my scrap stash to make several more. The pattern ranges from size 6 months to 10 years, so I know I'll use it again and again. This one is a definite recommend.
