    My DH and I are going to CA in November to visit our 3 grown up "kids". We have a 3 year old grandson that I've made a machine embroidered Disney wall hanging for his room because he loves to go to Disneyland (they only live a few miles away). He has a brother that will be 10 months old by the time we get there (his birthday is in January). This will be the first we've seen him. I want to make something for him but I'm not sure what to make for a 10 month old. Since they live in So. CA I don't want to make anything "warm", like fleece. Any suggestions???

    How about an eye-spy quilt? He's too young now, but it's something he could grow into soon. Just do a small one they can take to Dr. visits etc.

    I love that suggestion! Maybe use flannel as a batting to keep it a lighter weight, too. :D:D:D

    What about a fabric book. I have plans to make a book quilt. There might be a real name for it but I don't know it. I am using a fabric book (most are 100% cotton)and using the pages as blocks and doing an attic windows pattern. I think it was 12 pages so it will be 3 blocks wide by 4 blocks long, with boarders it will be perfect.

    I live in S CA. If you want to make something year round, maybe a cotton flannel batting. My grandson uses a pieced fleece coverlet even in the summer when he naps, it keeps the chill of the air conditioning off him.

    I like the idea of flannel as backing and maybe some cute teddy bears on top. Make sure to preshrink the flannel.

    Embroidery a Disney design on a tee shirt for the 10 month old or a bath towel. Little ones love their bath.

    What about a small pallet to lay in the floor, like for when he naps.
