You don’t have to be an expert quilter to make the right baby shower gift. First, you need to select the material for the handmade baby quilt.

If this is your first attempt at the art of quilting, it is best to keep your quilt pattern simple and easily sewn. Choose basic colors that are appropriate for the baby’s gender, unless you do not know that, then pastel yellow or white is a safe choice. Be sure you carefully wash and lightly iron all fabrics before you start to cut the fabrics.
