In order to decrease the risk of SIDS, babies are being laid on their backs to sleep. Because they spend so much time on their backs, babies also need "tummy time" daily to develop strong neck and arm muscles and learn to crawl. This quilt provides a safe, stimulating place for baby to develop and play. Finished size is about 36"x36".
Materials: 64 colorful fabric squares 4.5"x4.5", backing material 40"x40", quilt batting 40"x40", binding material cut into four 2"x40" strips.
Equipment: Sewing machine, iron, rotary cutter and mat, large safety pins, needle, thread.
Difficulty level: Easy to Medium.
Step 1: Lay Out Quilt
The 64 squares may be laid out in any design. When you are done, pick an end to be the top, and use sticky notes or bits of paper to label it with numbers.
