Cobblestones swap: Hilly van Zuylekom

The photo shows my 2 great-granddaughters in the USA playing with their quilts. The one in the foreground is made with the cobblestones alternated with 'I spy' blocks, the one in the background is similar but made with blocks from a 9-patch swap. I didn't want to make 2 quilts that were the same but nevertheless went together because the girls share a room. And of course they had to be pink.

And then of course she had to sleep under it - on the spot - and had a little snooze.

The girls really liked them :)

At the moment I am making a similar quilt for my great-grandson with the blue cobblestones. Those kind of relatively simple swaps are a real lifesaver!
