Default Ok Here goes-- I want to make a play Quilt

I want to make a play quilt for my newest Grandson to be here in March I have a few ideas but if you think of something else original please let me know Truck with a squeaker (maybe from a dog toy) Crunchy sound maybe an animal or bird, Tire swing with ring attached. Toy keys and a car... I want to make it kind of boy themed so can you think of some others? Help me out here!

That would be cute for my 2 year old grandson Kind of an eye spy road. But for now I want to do a baby tummy time mat with some activities that he can grow into.

I made one and put minky handles across a few blocks and attached toy rings, most of them can be opened for hanging on strollers. You can get squeakers at craft stores, I put the plastic wrap from inside cereal boxes (it dosent have any harmful additives in the plastic) inside a block for the crunch factor.

Does the cereal paper crunch even after it is washed? I was thinking something like that or potato chip bag

Also you could use a few fabrics with different textures - corduroy, suede, satin, denim, velvet, etc.

I have never done any applique so this will be interesting to say the least! I do have a list of ideas but need more sound type ideas now and if you know what to use or where to get them!

your idea made me think of those little children's blocks that make farm animal noises -- don't think they would be washable, though...maybe if you could tie them on with ribbon somehow & then untie them before washing...sounds interesting, but how do you keep these things from being harmful? [going in the mouth?] i think i would keep them separate from a quilt -- maybe like a little dashboard with velcro things on it.......can't wait to see what you come up with

You might want to think twice about the squeaker. It could be a choking hazard. Even if sewn inside, babies chew on everything. I know it doesn't take my dogs long to get to them

I thought of that with the squeaker but my Daughter it law would be right there at all times I know so I am not sure if I will do that just thinking right now!
