Edison’s cousin


 In this life, I have learned many things that do not work.   Eventually I may have some of these things worked through.    Today’s  “didn’t work” was trying to put this small baby quilt on fleece without batting to keep it light.   First these frogs are stuffed, which makes the fabric want to pucker.   Secondly fleece stretches a lot and I knew that but didn’t think about it.     I have not yet figured out a way to keep this little top straight because anything I put under it should be soft.

PS.   I took off the narrow border the pattern called for and put on a wider one.  I think this will help.   Then I decided to put a heavier batting in it as it will probably be something they lay on the floor so baby can play with the frogs.   Tomorrow is a new day.   I will try this new solution.

      Thank you. They are doing much better. They are cute, but I doubt cute enough to do another.
      And yes, the potholders are addictive. I’ve only done 3 of the star as I’m trying to branch out and do other designs as well
