    Baby Clothes quilt in progress. Need ideas!

    Hi everyone! Long time no read! LOL! I have been a busy bee last month working on this baby clothes quilt for a client. I have finally finished the top and have it loaded on my quilting machine. I am looking for ideas to fill in the blank squares. They are 4" squares and need a little something! I am filling in the pink areas around the squares with l's and e's and then the small flowered squares with a four petal flower. I am doing this free motion so any help would be appreciated!
    The quilt is from this link: http://www.craftastical.com/2009/08/...rom-start.html The client gave me baby clothes from her daughter which I cut the squares from. I tried to save ruffles, pockets, embroideries and such from each of the pieces. I probably didn't charge enough but I sure did have fun making it:0
    Thanks for looking!

    Oh, great idea! I wish I could do it free hand though. Not very good at drawing

    If you have animal cookie cutters, you could trace them on the plain squares and then follow the lines.
