Cheater Quilt Number 2

Having recently discovered finished quilt blocks on e-bay, that is where I went when I had a backload of projects and suddenly needed a baby quilt for a friend’s newborn.  I’ll have to say it didn’t work out as well the second time.  The black and white blocks turned out to be black, white, grey, cream and brown in addition to not being sewn as well as I would like (not poorly but I hate when the seams pucker and this has a lot of seams).   Luckily this was an all in one project and not something I would be combining with something else.    Oddly I could probably find time to do blocks, but travelling to the shops to get fabrics and hoping to find enough of the right kind would be too much (rural life does have a few disadvantages)  so thank you e-bay- I may call on you again if I have something time critical to complete.
