Here is a photo diary of my journey to turn the wonderful hand woven pieces sent to me into a colabrative blanket for her soon to be new baby boy. I hope I did justice to everyones lovely contribution.
Two of the pieces that were sent did not pass the machine washable test and shrank and felted. But they were lovely and and nicely done so I decided to use them in other ways for the quilt and baby.
I thought to cut disks out and use of them as "button" reinforcement to tie the layers of the blanket together. ( cant you see a baby when he gets older playing with these instead of napping?)
I cut up the blue felted hand woven piece along with the greenish left over from the "buttons"into sections and sewed , embroidered and stuffed a wool felt baby toy.

I am dreaming of a baby boy having tummy time on this blanket this summer looking at all of your weavings.
