Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Baby Quilt Blocks

What did you do last week-end? I sewed together a few blocks for a baby quilt. My nephew is expecting his first child. My sisters and I thought that we would make a baby quilt for him and his wife. We picked an applique quilt that has baby animals on it and are making the blocks from different fabrics. Kinda like one of those board books with animals that has cutouts with fur for the baby to touch.

Saturday, my oldest sister and I made several of the dozen blocks. My pink pig is made from minky fabric. My brown bunny has a pink velvet ear and a fake fur bunny tail. The owl is made with a feather fabric and has felted wool for it's eyes and claws, along with a corduroy tree branch. Lastly, I made a raggy piece of fabric from yellow flannel and cut out my duckling. His wings are attached, so that they are moveable.

My sister made a goldfish from gold lame. The fins are moveable like the duckling. She also made a lady bug from red silky fabric with velvet spots and started a butterfly from a multi-colored batik with a purple velvet body. You'll have to wait until the quilt is finished to see her blocks and the other five baby animals we are making, since I didn't get a snapshot of her blocks.

Hope you enjoyed your week-end.

Happy Stitching!
