    Children's Shop

    Designed this myself, but to challenging to make a whole quilt. Other than a pillow, any suggestions? It's 12 1/2 by 12 1/2. ThanksName:  Children's Shop.jpg

    Why not use it in a quilt with orphaned blocks or an eye spy quilt, etc. It's way too cute not to use. I love it.

    Just love that block....How about framing it and hanging it on a wall where you will see it every day to remind you how creative you are?

    I had a couple suggestions...guess they didn't go thru....Wall hanging? Or maybe the center of a childs quilt? With kids fabric around it?? Just thinking. Very cute. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

    What an adorable block! Maybe you could use it as the center square of a large (single) Log Cabin block for a wall-hanging? It's too cute not to use someplace!

    I think I'm inspired to try a child's quilt with this as center block.

    Found out there is a category for blocks at our county fair. I have been so encouraged by your comments that I think I will enter this and see what it does!

    Beautiful, wonderful work. I would make solid blocks same size as this and sew them together using this as the center block and use colors used in this block. Would make a cute twin quilt for a child's bed. Just my thoughts.

    I have decided to make a quilt with this being the center block with other appliqued blocks of children's clothing surrounding it. I have already started drawing out my clothing. This site is great and now I can't wait to begin working on this new project. Thanks for your help!
