40 x 48
For baby Marshall, my grandnephew, who entered the world a few days ago and a few days before grandnephew, Tyberius, who already has his quilt. (Only 3 more quilts to go for this year - oh, the joys of a very large extended family!!!)
Baby and parents can play I Spy and spy colors, numbers, letters, pictures, things that start with a letter...and so on. I suppose you could even spy some shapes and when they get older find something that rhymes with ?
I like to use these velvety iron on letters. I iron them on next to the pic that starts with the letter but don't put them all in the same spots next to each pic so kids have to hunt around. The velvety feel gives an extra tactile sensation when kids trace the letters. Now...I'm not sure Marshall will be able to identify T for Telephones that look like that or even S for Stamp so he will get a history lesson with his quilt too.
In order to get 30 blocks for a 5 x 6 layout I add fabrics with numbers and letters at the beginning and end.
I backed it with some flannel with monkeys on it.
