I'm trying to use up some fabric from past projects---waaaay past projects. I wanted to make fun things for babies about 36" square. Plus I can practice quilting them. When I made my Talk-About-Quilts, I included some of these fabrics for "story-telling" squares. The varied log cabins were for color identification. If I were the mom of a baby looking at this I'd talk all about the animals and colors and try to figure out what they could be thinking....and we'd walk our fingers from square to square, first looking for similar colors, then animals. And we'd hunt up matching pieces..... (I'm a bit over the edge... I took my teaching out on my kids--they could do the Kindergarten report card at age 2 and could read at 3.5. :oops: )
At first I had a log cabin every other square, but that was a bit much, even for me! :shock:
The backs would be large fun stuff--just one piece--but big bears, or cats...or flannel. I already have it all!
I'd give one to my grandkids--if I had any. :D
Or am I crazy? :roll:
Or will it make a kid crazy? :roll:
Or should I sew them up and see what happens?
Or should I use all the log cabin squares alone?
And the quilters said....
