Yep, that's the one we were looking for awhile back-I had actually posted on a different message board for it. Really easy......

2 12 inch squares, 1 12inch square of batting, layer batting, fabric right side up, fabric right side down, sew around and leave a spot for turning. Turn right side out, whip stitch the opening. Ribbon is 1 yard for each length-so you need 4 yards. 12 inches each end & 12 inches (more or less) across the width. Sew ribbon 3" in from all sides. I used a decorative stitch on the ribbon but you can do a zig zag if you want. Did find that a walking foot helped keep fabric from bunching at the end, or you could leave side 4 completely open until you sew on the ribbon and then stitch it closed. just tie up the corners and you are done. Really cute. I used mine for bread at Easter time but they'd be cute sitting on a dresser, sink top, sewing room, etc.

Hope those instructions are a little clearer than mud! LOL

If you have any questions, just ask.

Hogmami, I made those quilts for my grandchildren-had a great time using all the bright colors! Those are actually my first attempts so I was pretty pleased.
