Patterson Kathy 225px 150x150 Friday Free Quilt Patterns: Flashing Lights Baby QuiltBaby quilt patterns designed with just a few classic blocks can look very traditional or very modern depending on the setting and fabric choices.

Those cool contemporary fabrics are from the Canyon collection by Kate Spain for Moda, by the way.

This was a super easy pattern to downsize for a baby. Just 9 blocks are all it takes to create a 36 1/2″ square version of this design, perfect for a cuddle quilt or play mat.
