Soft Blocks for Baby

Along with working full time, regular housework, a 2 month old baby and a general lack of sleep I have gone above and beyond and managed to make a whopping 5 stuffed blocks in the last 2 weeks. I never thought this modest sewing would be such an accomplishment but boy, I feel lucky to have found the time to do them. I dove into my scrap squares this time, having exhausted most of my scrap stripes recently. I loved finding the 6 squares that would make one block. Making each into a little color family. I stole some of the jingle bell cat toys from the cats and nestled them in the middle of the poly-fil batting in some of the blocks. I had intentions of filling a film canister with a few beans to make a shaker for one, but film canisters are practically extinct and I’ll be damned if I can find one in my house.  There is a baby shower later this month and while I would normally make a baby quilt I think I can admit that there isn’t a snowballs chance in Hades that I will find time for that and I will be making some more of these.
