What a great idea.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thank you so much - I've been thinking recently that it would be nice to have a quilt I can lay on the floor, etc. for my grandsons to play with their cars and trucks. This would be very good for that and like you said, adding some appropriate printed fabric in some of the squares would be nice and it would make it like a little town or city.
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful comfort quilt for children. And more importantly, thanks for the instructions and measurements!
A couple years ago, Project Linus did something similar in that they sewed a pocket into quilt and inserted those stuffed tiny animals (with the little red tag attached). Guess they got factory to donate hundreds of them for us. I forget what those characters were called but I liked them too! lol Gave us all a smile as we were quilting away.
Great idea. Sounds like an easy way to use up some scraps and make a really cute quilt for a youngster.
Thank you for the ideas. Sometimes we get brain dead and need some inspiration. I bookmarked it for myself for the future. Thank you again.
Those are some great ideas!
Yes, I live out in the country, so of course I thought of fields and dirt roads, but change the sashing to black and put more houses (or fabrics with pictures of houses and "town stuff") and it would make a town.Originally Posted by Jackie R
If you're making it for a specific child, the house block could be personalized in the colors of the child's house (in the diagram it is gray with a red roof because my house is).
Cute idea! I've also thought of doing a dollhouse quilt with the quilt divided into different "rooms", and furniture appliqued in each room. A little cloth doll could go in a pocket on the bed (I saw a quilt in an old Quiltmaker magazine where each square was a little bed that a doll could be tucked into.)Originally Posted by Wunder-Mar
What about a block or two of water for a pond or small lake, and maybe add a small boat? This is such a great idea for a quilt!
I like that idea, perfect for a GS.
