    Has anyone ever taken baby bibs and appliqued to squares to make a full size quilt?

    I've never seen baby bibs but I did seen one where they used the baby's most precious outfits on different blocks. They even included the socks. don't remember where I saw it though.

    I just finished one. I used 24' blocks and put the bibs on the block & sewed just on the inside of the bib binding. Sometimes I did straight stitching and sometimes decorative stitching. I used variegated thread on top. I used a muslin base and you do not want a heavy batting as the bibs are heavy to begin with. If I did it again I would use flannel as my batting. Live and learn. I used muslin base and stitched everything to warm and natural, way to heavy so I went back and cut away the warm and natural where it was not sewn down. I did not do it the traditional style with the back sewn with the top but did a sew and flip type back and tied with pearl cotton in between the bibs. If I can get my son to down load the pictures I just took I will post them. If this doesn't make sense and you have questions please feel free to pm me and I will be happy to answer them. I am not always good at explaining in writing.

    I hit send too quickly and did not get a chance to finish my memo. The other quilt is the memory quilt made for the same person from the same child's clothes. It is the same size as the bib quilt 9'X6'. It took almost a year to complete them, they were originally suppose to be one quilt, one the top and one the back like I did mine but when I was finished it was way too heavy so she is getting two quilts.

    I love the quilts. I think I like the outfits better than the bibs though. Is she hanging these or using these?
