I'm designing a baby quilt for my music ministers 1st grandchild. I work with him and the middle school choir and he tells stories to the kids at the end of the class. One of the favorite stories is about a worm named Cecil and his family.I've decided to do an applique/emborderied baby quilt. I can't decide if I should do separate blocks or do a solid background piece and work ok whole cloth. Do you have any ideas?
