Assemble an assortment of different novelty fabric squares. The fabric should contain images of items that children could recognize. Squares can range from 2″ to 8″ depending on size of quilt and the number of individual fabrics you have. For example, a baby size quilt might need 48 five inch squares plus 1 1/4 yard of border fabric. That’s 48 different fabrics (you might want to find a buddy to share fabrics with on this one) .
Assemble squares 6 across and 8 down. Add the border around it. Embroider the names of the items to be found in the border. This could be done by hand, machine, or drawn with fabric marker.
