Plan the Quillow
For my Grandson
You can put a handle on the quillow or make a separate little tote bag so they can use it as a picnic or play throw anywhere
add a little pillow on the top edge and they can use it as a nappy sack
The blocks are 10 inch using scraps
with an item in the center
Put Your small square in the middle and then fill in your block with scrap strips, so you use up all your scraps.
I first cut out all the pairs of small squares and laid them in a pile, and then just grabbed scraps and filled in the blocks after sewing the first small square on.
You could have a theme, Vegetables, Animals,
I am using my scraps from masks-so it is everything
Burger and fries block
Potato Chip Block
I have 32 blocks- to I spy- 16 that repeat once somewhere
Each Center picture to have a solid color block cover that has the letter of the name on the front
flap underneath and a number of the sequence it is in on the quilt top.
After putting all the blocks out and figuring where they are going on the quilt- Numbers will be put on the front top of the flap so that you can say-- Number 5 or Number 7 and try to match the squares word items -like concentration....
You can make bigger quillow and do 52 blocks or more
Step one Plan
Step Four - sew the front together to the exact size it will be
Step Seven - do a really cute pillow pocket and handles
You can do a smaller quilt just for play
There are 26 letters in the Alphabet so I wont have all the letters in the alphabet repeat
Pairs of everything so they can play concentration
In my case, I bought quarter yards of bright colored marble blender fabrics for the flap that goes over the I Spy concentration pic
Be back with more pics as I finish Steps

Cleaning and hate to waste scraps...
Got called into work, but before the call of duty...
Cutting circles of different textures to make a texture ball for the baby...
1. Cut the circles whatever size you want the ball
2. fold circles in half and stitch wrong side out on curve and leave opening.
3. sew a strip of fold over that you can use to hook the ball pieces together
4. stuff you pieces and
5. sew them together... you can put a piece of elastic in the center to create a loop from the center so it can be attached to things but small enough not to interfere with the rolling.
