I had a story this week in a local Sydney Magazine Northside about making quilts for Babies.
I love making baby quilts. They are a manageable size for starters, I also like imagining the new life thats going to snuggle under it.
I'm a bit of a sucker for babies in general.
Most people taking my classes are making baby quilts for family or friends, its a good introduction into the world of quilting & its a lovely keep sake.
If you don't think you can manage a whole quilt (no matter how small) get together with some friends and do a block each? if you all chip in together - getting a baby quilt long arm machine quilted wont cost much at all.
Your imagination is the limit
simple shapes, complicated pattern, vintage fabric, old dresses, applique, words
the list is endless
here are some pictures of a few quilts that are baby sized
|this is the quilt that was featured in the Northside magazine story|
& when they get a bit bigger and sleeping in big beds, it can still be simple! just twice the size
on another note, I have been busy printing up greeting cards out of my photo's
I'm hoping to have them all ready by the new year - If your a shop & interested give me a bell!
