So, this here little project was inspired and made for my 1st cousin. Our Oma always made a quilt for the great grandbabies, and that meant my brother's kids and mine own all got one from Oma. Sadly, Oma went to Heaven before she had the opportunity to stitch together any quilts for the other great grandbabies that were to come. At Oma's funeral I told the next oldest cousin that I would make her a blanket whenever she had children. I tried to get old clothes or fabric from Oma for this, but her things had been given away or stored. So after much thought and procrastination, this little pattern for Squiggly Worms fell into my lap. My cousin had a boy, this would be good ~ worms!
|Mom and I showing it to the neighbor who lent her pattern and frame.|
|Pining the top together. Suzy Ducks were from my daughter's blanket.|
|Hubby insisted that I put a ruffle on the baby blanket! It is fun to play with :)|
|Borrowed a frame from a neighbor, who also lent me the Country Woman|
magazine with the pattern in it.
|The black music note material came from an old dress and|
I was wondering if it had come from my cousin at some point.
They are musical, so I thought it worked either way.
|Sewing blocks as strips, then cutting them apart ~ makes|
the project go a little faster.
|Smiling little worm...Mom did the faces :)|
