I was playing around with some scraps of linen (from thrifted skirts) and vintage bed sheets to come up with these baby blocks. I got to experiment with contrasting thread and some of the really cool stitches I have on my machine too.
It's interesting to note that all the squares measured 5x5 to make all of these blocks. Seam allowance made all the difference. I also found out that I need to draw my sewing lines in order to clean, crisp corners. That way I don't over sew my seams and end up with a trapezoid instead of a cube. And if you don't want any of your squares to match a joining square you need at least 3 different fabrics for a total of 6 squares. I used interfacing to get the structure I was looking for and it also helped keep the linen from stretching out of whack.
These will be shipped off soon to a new baby girl. :)
