(Apologies if I'm posting to the wrong board, let me know & I can remove.)

So, when my siblings and I were wee ones, our grandmother made a little quilt with all different textured fabrics.  A co-worker is having a baby and I thought I'd make her one with the scrappy textured fabrics from my stash, thinking it may be good for 'belly time'.  It is simply 12 6"x6" squares of different colored & textured fabrics.  From top right: some kind of baby washcloth material, stretchy nylon of some kind, faux suede, crepe back satin, costume satin, flannel, sherpa(?), canvas, velveteen, taffeta, corduroy, fuzzy cotton something.  (Some of these fabrics have been gifted to me years ago and I'm not really sure what they are, sorry!)



It didn't come out as smooth and even as I would like, next time I will have to take more care in construction as each square is a different thickness causing warping as I sewed.

Thank you for taking the time to look! Smiley

this is a very cool idea - and something not so common as far as baby gifts go. Smiley
