I didnt exactly do books for babys, I did a scrappy and sew history floor pillow, size is 24x24 over stuffed made with Essex Linen and Scraps that are at my feet as I sew. . Now my grandbabies can sit in my studio and doodle or mess up the buttons..as they do. I will show the scraps on the floor, Everyone in my house plays with them.
This pillow has personal history for me.There are a piece of fabric from some of my favorites, or makes a statement of what I love, like cross-stitching and my scissors. Also, some that I wanted to slice, I love working with linen its very forgiving. I wish that I had the skills to do more FMQ. Watch for what I tried. LOL.... I am going to have to take a class, I was afraid my machine was going to eat The Center block I made it personal, a practice PP with triangles, Also a cross-stitch piece, and a bird symbolizing Simple Sew.
It took me a bit to figure out how to reverse the pattern to make some books go the other direction. Once I figured it out, it was easy but I didnt want an entire baby blanket of books. Each Block has a special sewing memory for me.

I finally got to use my Rotating Board, makes trimming easy
Look at my FMQ, Do you think I need practice.. LOL
I love the Pattern Fabric, it has so many possibilities
This shows you its a Big Pillow and the cool fabrics.
Sorry about the pictures, my camera is in the shop. I have been sewing some this summer, but family and summer is a busy time for Gandma's.
Have a fun and safe one
