    Baby K's Quilt

    with backing simply won't load! AAAArg! Well I'll try again, but it was a simple grey paisley print, to honor the mom's wishes, and I made the front bright & colorfull like I wanted! Thye parents said they liked it, but I can only hope they really do.....

When I make up a crib set I always make a separate baby quilt in a smaller size to use to wrap up the baby in. I do this because most babies are not supposed to use anything in the crib till they are around a year old or even older. (I make the crib quilt so that it will fit a toddler bed (which most cribs nowadays are the size of) this way it will be used longer.) I vote for making one that you like and then the crib one for the mommy. I hope that this helps you.
    Thank you while reading this post I kept thinking please do not put a quilt on that new baby!! Babies need nothing other than a warm sleeper or a blanket tucked under their arms. Let us prevent Sudden Infant Death syndrome!

    When my son was born 22 1/2 yrs ago,
    The first of his quilts was black and white.
    E eryone loved especially my son.
    For thefirst few months, babys focus on black and white
    they also like fa es and geometric shapes.
    I made him a black ad white sq. Quilt and
    Apliqued geo shapes onit.
    he loved looking at it

    That's the KEY right there. Tell the mom that this quilt is for her and baby to knock around in. Throw it on the floor in the den or bring it outside to lay the baby on. Then it can be the baby's drag around quilt, etc. And...I don't ask or give choices. I "surprise" them with what I chose for the baby.

    PS It is a very thoughtful gesture of the mom to consider the little girl who shares the room. But, IMHO, no black and gray for Baby.Good luck.
    One step at a time, always forward.
