    Baby Quilts

    Hi everyone,

    I'm going to be a grandma again for the 2nd time, no idea what she's having yet she's only a couple of months into this.

    I have gone through all my magazines and other books I have in the house but none have anything baby related, so I'm looking for links or suggestions for baby quilt patterns and I'm also looking for receiving blanket type patterns. Can anyone suggest some links I can go to for these type of items?

    Thanks! It will be even more exciting if it's a girl keep your fingers crossed I have 2 grandsons so looking forward to this one being a girl!

    Hi from Germany! How about just making a small quilt and using a lot of red - babies love red! That's what I did and mom and baby loved it. And I made one for a girl: in pink and apple green. It looked nice if I say so myself.
    Congratulations on the new grandchild!

    I have done some with one big block. Check out "One Block and Done" ----Hope I have the title right. Done with large prints that you don't want cut too small and something to match besides pink or blue.

    I always like Trip Around the World - fast and easy but looks great.

    Here is a top I did in aqua and peach.

    I love both of them I am hoping to find out on the ultrasound image what she's having he wants to wait she wants to know, I told her tell him I have quilts to make and buy things for a girl so he's getting out voted. I said well you can ask what it is and let me know, but tell him you will keep it a secret from him unless he really wants to know.

    Congrats Sheila, we are going to be grandparents again too. We have 4 grandsons and are elated to know IT'S A GIRL!!! I have made two flannel rag quilts so far and about a dozen spit up cloths. I have the fabric needed to make a 44 x 54 inch chennille quilt and the fabrics for two others which I plan to use strip piecing like on Missouri Star Quilt Co
    Videos. It's already been great fun to make something girly. I make the tops my wife does the quilting.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I have seen some great flannel rag quilts and love how they look!! Maybe you could try that out.

    Here is a link to a pinterest board that has lots of really cute rag quilts:
    http://pinterest.com/fruitfulmomma/rag-quilts/

    I think they're a good choice for kids cause they are 3-D and they have something to touch and play with as they are snuggling with it
    If you don't try, you can never do.
