Quick and easy at 5 inch baby quilt

This quilt was made with a 5 inch squares.

The squares have 1 1/2 inch strips on two side. They are  rotated back and forth to give a great presentation.The strips are 1 1/2" x 5" and 1 1/2" by 6".
I just cut a 1 1/2" inch strip and sewed the 5" squares along one side of the strip and cut them apart. Then I turned all the squares the same direction and sewed the second side of the square onto the one and a half inch strip.  The new square measures 6". The layout I used is from  Bonnie Hunter's dancing nine patches. Bonnie's nine patches measured 5 inches. This made it easy to convert over to a solid square.

Enjoy and keep sewing.
