Tucson Quilt

I had an aunt that lived in Tucson, AZ growing up and when she was having babies they wouldn't make baby blankets with batting because it was too hot.  Instead, they just sewed two pieces of cotton together.  When a friend of mine found out she was going to move to Tucson when her baby was born I was thrilled that I could sew her a Tucson quilt because it is so simple! I simply put two pieces of cotton right sides together and sewed up all four sides, leaving five inches open to turn. Then I turned it inside out and did a zig-zag stitch around the whole thing, closing the five inch hole.  How easy is that! It isn't even necessary to tie it or anything!
