She wants us to incorporate pieces of clothing from the first two years of his life.
This week I have been busy sorting and cutting and today was the first time I was able to proceed towards creating some of the blocks.
Each one will be 8 inches when sewn into the quilt and I need to make 30. Today I was able to put together the basics for 25 of them.
I am revealing a sneak peak of some of the blocks that are still very much a work in progress.
There will be few pocket patches.
The quilt is to be used by the young boy it is being made for. A pocket with a velcro tab could well be an ideal place for him to hide precious treasures.
As a mother of 4 boys you can imagine that sorting through these items and making decisions has been a lot of fun for me.
I have lots of motifs from garments to work with as well so there will be more to tell as work progresses.
I hope you will enjoy the opportunity to follow my updates on this project.
Linda will be machine quilting the blocks when I have pieced them and we have a commitment to complete by the end of April. So far so good.
