Handmade baby quilts for boys and girls

Baby Quilt Safety – Buttons and Bows

Little girls and their baby quilts just go hand in hand with buttons and bows – right? Think again.
Those pink and lacy decorations create a baby quilt with the little girl or princess touch. A bow here or a few small buttons there are lovely adornments. How could these few, simple additions, which dress up the baby quilt, become such a hazard to a baby or a young child?

Where Do I Come Up With Ideas for My Baby Quilts?

It may be in the middle of the night or on the way to the grocery store, I can get an idea for my baby quilts sometimes in the most unusual places.
I live in South Florida with a lake in my back yard. It is not uncommon to have the most unusual wild life in and around the water. A beautiful stork flew into the pine tree last week and though he may have flown for miles, chose to stand, as the species always does, on one leg. He or she posed long enough for me to take this photo. How appropriate, a stork came by, as I am looking for ideas for baby quilts!

Designing a New Baby Quilt

Ready, set, go… It is not a race when I set out to design a new baby quilt.
Before I decide how I want my next baby quilt to look, I pull out the quilt books on my shelves, the magazines that I have sitting just waiting for me to leaf through their pages, and check out some of my patterns that I have saved either in boxes or on the computer files.

Piping Quilt Binding – SEW Decorative?

SEW Decorative – Consider a Piper Baby Quilt Binding
A few extra minutes and a slice of color of fabric between the quilt and your baby quilt binding does wonders for the appearance and the accents the edge or frame.

T-Shirt Memory Quilt

Memories are not always tucked in between the pages of a book. Today they are pressed in between the 20 squares finished on the t-shirt quilt. I am designing a t-shirt quilt for my daughter for her high school graduation. Amazingly enough the thoughts and good memories that fit into each 16 x 16 inch blocks were the t-shirts worn by my daughter as she participated in soccer at age 6, played volleyball in middle school, played on the traveling teams for soccer or on her HS teams.
