I needed a baby gift. I saw an adorable baby playing with a stuffed baby block with tags on a blog called Simplify . It is featured in the winter issue of Quilts & More . I did not have time to go out and buy the magazine, so I searched and found a bunch of different methods for putting the block together on the Internet.
I chose the steps I liked from a few of the blogs and added a few twists of my own. I always like to streamline projects by combining steps to make them easier and quicker.
It is easier to adapt someone else's directions. Here is my method.
Start with 7" squares of 6 different fabrics.
Quilt with a walking foot.
Embroider the baby's name or add a fusible letter or any kind of applique.
Trim the squares to 6 1/2" and lay them out in the shape of a cross.
Choose an assortment of colorfast ribbons and rick rack and cut them to 4".
Welcome to the world baby Chloe. I think you will enjoy this in a few months.
