I've been dying to try out another of the patterns from Georgia Leigh's Puking Pastilles etsy shop. My cousin Jill is having a baby shower in the coming weeks, so I thought the graduated baby blocks would be perfect!
I admit, the fusible interfacing step frightened me, and sewing the corners absolutely TERRIFIED me, but I gave it a good ol' college try. There was no need for fear...these guys are easy, and SO FUN!
Fusing was cake...
I used a quilting ruler to make sure my edges were nice and straight - and I enlarged the blocks just a smidge. I took this photo after adding the interfacing
One corner/set of 3 blocks done. I had to redo the second set, because I messed up the "mirror image" part - even after double checking twice. Thank you seam ripper! You are my friend.
And, voila! A finished, soft, jingly, baby block! (Per Georgia's advice, I added a kitty bell toy to the center, so it makes a nice little sound. Gotta cater to all the senses we can, right?!)
Now I just have to make the medium and small sized blocks. No problemo!
