    This is so absolutely adorable! I had an idea for a teepee quilt (the whole quilt being one big subsection of a giant teepee), and now I’m sort of wanting to use your blocks as the front of the design and my original idea as the backing :o)

    How do these wash up?

    Sarah- that would be so cute! love the idea. Not sure how they would wash…the flaps might crinkle up. You might want to look into putting a stablizer in there when sewing them to give them a bit more security. I’d love to know if you end up doing it!

    Adorei a ideia e penso em fazer uma colcha. Tenho tantas sobras de tecidos infantis que posso fazer algo realmente divertido!

    Li agora que a Sarah teve a mesma ideia e você mencionou que pode ser difícil lavar, que as abas poderiam se enrugar. Estou estudando uma forma de tornar isso mais seguro.
