I love baby quilts. I love babies. All of a sudden I have the opportunity for several!!! Two of my fellow teachers are going to be new parents and one of them found out she is expecting twins.
I would love to hear from you. What is your favorite pattern for a baby quilt?
The expecting parents have not decided yet how the nurseries will be decorated but I am anxious to at least decide on the patterns.
I like to make baby quilts no less than 40 inches by 55 inches. This allows the quilt to become the "blankie" as the baby grows into a toddler and gives him/her enough room to cuddle in or play on.
I like to use a term coined by one of my first quilt customers --- a quilt like this is a "drag-about" quilt. Thank you Bessie. A drag-about quilt is a quilt that is well loved, well used and dragged wherever one might go. I like it when the quilts I make become the drag-abouts. I like to know that my quilts bring happiness, warmth and comfort to their owners!
