Gifts are a common site when a couple are about
to become parents. The most common ones being
diapers, toys and clothes.
But not all can be bought, the most cherished
items are those made with lot of selfless love
made by aunts or grandparents.
A home-made blanket is
generally a sign of love and care for the baby.
Here is a great crafting site <A
m</A>. Made with lots of love, skill and
extreme care, a baby quilt becomes a part of
legacy, bequeathed from one generation to the
other and choice of the quilt pattern becomes
an inseparable component of the process.
The most common baby quilt
patterns are trains, planes, the alphabet,
ships and ducks. The patterns summarize what
the quilter need and how to go about finishing
the project. If you are not experienced in the
task of quilt making you might weigh the option
of a tutorial to get acquainted with the
technique of quilt making.
Generally, communities exist
to offer different classes to the local
citizens. One that might interest you may be a
quilting class, which might turn out to be a
perfect means of making a baby quilt.
Many a times participants
have a facility to bring the supplies and
patterns of their own choice. This is a great
opportunity for someone considering baby quilt
patterns. You can achieve two goals at the same
time, one of learning to make a quilt and the
other of sewing the quilt of ones personal
choice, with the help of the instructor, who
guides you at every step.
A fabric store is a great
place to choose a design, especially when you
don't have an idea about the design. If you are
a first timer choosing a simple pattern is a
good idea, which could be anything like sky
with some white clouds. Patchwork is a common
pattern for baby quilts, which can be done in
different shades of either pink or blue. White
or yellow is always preferable when you don't
know the gender of the baby.
Having learnt the basics of
quilting you will be equipped to complete any
quilt pattern. Several women of a family
working together on a project is a noble idea.
To do this, copies of the chosen quilt patterns
can be made available so that everyone knows
what to do.
It will be a sight to see
the new parents overjoyed at the thoughtful
gift which will surely be treasured even after
the baby has grown.
