In the meantime I have just spent a few hours making a birthday present for a little one year old. He's the grandson of a farming friend and I was inspired by some lovely fat quarters I was given at Christmas which had farm animals and tractors on them. I remember the soft books that used to be about when I was little (I dare say they still are but haven't ventured into a toy shop for years).
So I used the pictures to make a little picture book, one little hands can hold but not rip.
I was then left with 6 little squares that I didn't know what to do with - lightbulb moment - 6 squares make a cube. So the remaining pictures became a soft block filled with off cuts of wadding that I always keep for stuffing. He can look at the pictures or throw it at someone if he wants, there are no sharp corners!!!
Well I guess that's it for now, back to the quilt before I lose my inspiration.
