Now that I have quite a few blocks cut from his clothing I will begin the design process.  Designing this one is a little bit "backwards" from how I usually work.  Since his clothing varies from newborn to toddler, I have to lay out the design based on the maximum size square I was able to cut from the clothing, and how many squares I was able to get out of each shirt!  I haven't decided if the corner blocks are going to just be trimmed down to match the size of the other blocks, or if I am going to turn them into pinwheels.  I am going to do a "test" pinwheel out of scrap fabric and see how the size works.  I can't wait to work on it more tomorrow!!!



  1. That will be so cute once you are finished. I kind of like the look of different sized blocks.

    God bless.

    1. Thank you! I will like the look of the different sized blocks as long as I can make it symmetric and with some kind of "planned" order to it. When his mom and I were looking online at quilts made from baby clothes to get an idea of what she liked, there were a LOT of quilts that looked like all of the pieces of fabric were just cobbled together. I do not like that look at all. Thankfully his mom agreed with me! It would be hard for me to make a "messy" looking quilt, LOL.
