When our DIL was pregnant a few years ago with our first grandchild we decide to make a quilt for the baby. We had some alphabet material that we loved and wanted to use so decided to go log cabin. Unfortunately there were three different block sizes so I had to figure out how to make each fit in the block and feel we succeeded. We chose non gender colors and when our grandson was born they loved it.
I have subsequently decided to make a patchwork puzzle ball from Jinny Beyer from scraps of each quilt we ever made and keep a display basket in our foyer so that when I see any ball I will know that came from a certain quilt and will always have a record. The balls don't always use every color but enough do get used to identify the quilt.
Hope you enjoy.
