March Madness Friday is upon us again already!! The older we get, the faster time flies. How many of you have some special little baby you’d like to shower with quilts? I know I do. Seems like once you’re a grandma every baby quilt you see starts to metamorphous into the perfect one for one of the grandchildren with just the right color selection. We have so many grandmas and moms or moms-to-be that have a blast in our middle room picking out that perfect quilt for the little newcomer.
Our baby quilt book, “Priorities”, is chock full of baby quilt ideas for just what is says….the Priorities in our lives! We’ve redone the quilts in this book time and again in different colorways and each time we’re thrilled with the results. If you find a pattern in this book, but you’re stumped about color selection be sure to stop in and we can help you out. Playing with color is what we like to do best.
We have 2 new babies in the family, so they got the same pattern, “Puddleduds”, in 2 different colorways. They look like 2 totally different quilts! Little Jack got this one to match his nursery.
Little Ariella’s sweet quilt is done in soft pastels with a fun little border print. Both of them have some minkee on the front and they’re backed with minkee.
Minkee is great for those little babies; soft, cuddly and warm for these Minnesota winters. We want those little ones to stay warm!
Jane made this one for that little dinosaur lover in your life with the pattern “Heaven Sent”. It’s gorgeous in the primary colors and is such a change from the sample in the book done in lime, bright pink and pastels.
Go to our website and look through the pictures in the “Priorities” book if you don’t have the book at home. It’s amazing how color changes the look of the quilt! While you’re there, be sure to look at pictures from “Northwoods Crossing” because now that you’ve spoiled the little ones in your life, let’s not forget about the men. They like to be spoiled, too! Northwoods Crossing can do just that with quilts of all sizes done in a northwoodsy theme that men gravitate to when they’re in the store.
Here’s a fun one that Deb put together in the Dr. Suess fabrics. It’s not in either of the books, but when I was out taking pictures in the quilt shop I spied this and just had to share… it’s adorable. How cute would this be as a baby gift, with some Dr. Suess books! The kit has everything you need, including the pattern and the size is 26” x 37” for $39.99. It’s not a real expensive gift, but still very personal.
Isn’t it just the cutest?!? The pattern is a quilt as you go. So when you’re done sewing it, you’re done quilting it, too. You have to feel it to believe it ! 🙂 It’s one of a kind.
