My niece was just born the other day and I wanted to make a super fast and fun gift to take over in exchange for me getting to hold her. This is such a fun and easy project. To make this project easier I first sewed the ribbon to the flannel squares as close to the edge as possible before constructing the block. This way I knew that all the ribbon was securely attached.
I think next time I'm going to do some appliqué on the sides of the block and add some ribbon there instead of so much at the seams.
