When I make burp cloths for my daughter, she likes them in complementary pairs. So here is a pair with a kitties print and spotty dots print, in pink of course. The finished burp cloths measure about 12"x18" and are shown folded in thirds here. The back side is the same fabric as the outer bands. I top-stitched in white since I did not seem to have just the right pink - my pink options were too dark, too mauve, or too coral.
This complementary pair has a bit more modern look with the chickadee flannel and the linked circle graphic flannel. White top-stitching was my choice for this one too, since I did not have an exact pink to match the graphic circles background.
Then I remembered in my stash I had a couple yards of a whimsical chicken print. For the stripe, plaid, butterfly, and geometric-shape prints I had quarter yard strips strips, not fat quarters, so I used them folded for the double thickness center band. I also diverged from the complementary pair theme, both to use the quarter yard cuts to best advantage and to avoid cutting up those bold chickens. The top burp cloth has only one third of it flipped over to show the back side. The hen print is on the back of all of these.
I love turquoise on little girls and it was in all the prints, so I top-stitched these four in a bright turquoise thread. Those hens remind of the song from The Music Man musical where the ladies gather round chattering like old biddy birds, singing.
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more
