As soon as I get proficient enough to make a nice baby blanket, I am going to start making them for Moms who need a little help. I was one of those Moms so I know how it feels. A pretty, warm blanket, even if it is made of good, but not super good fabric, with a whole lot of love sewn in, is a wonderful way to show love and caring.
I was cutting tags off a shirt today, and there was a little plastic bag with a button inside. I’ve been collecting these for quite awhile now. This is when I had a light blub moment.
When I am cutting my pieces, I am going to cut a couple of extra pieces of each fabric for each part of a block, and put the pieces in a ziplock that I will attach with a love note to the quilt. That way, down the road one day, they will be able to replace a stained or torn piece and still not have to redo the whole quilt.
Take care. Beth
