    I agree with Ruth. I just had the same request except she told me what she wanted. A quilt with the birth date, name and weight. If that is the case it will not do for a baby shower!

    The little personal quilts that are popular out here are just a little piece that the little ones carry around. Usually they are out of a soft material like minky, that feels nice and soft against their skin. Some have a stuffed animal head attatched in the middle of them.

    A personal baby quilt is a new concept to me. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for these cute little things. I haven't been to a baby shower in quite a while. Is this the latest craze?

    V, You are a really-really nice person!! To have made 1 and they ask for another??:0)Here's what I would do if it were me...1st ask her to pencil out what she is wanting...and, 2-I'd tell her how much fabric to go buy:))LOL Then she'd have the colors she wanted, fabric and you would know exactly what she wants by the drawing. I do agree w/Ruth that they are prob wanting the personal info of birth, name, date, and weight. Which are very precious keepsakes forever. Skeat ps-the 'binkie' fabric you are talking about is that soft casmere feeling of a towel consistancy. Some have circles in a form on them, plaids and plain.

    Thank you to all for the suggestions. I will be checking different websites to see what I come up with. And you are right Skeat, I kinda felt funny about it once she knew she was getting the crib quilt and then mentioning the personal quilt. If I do decide to give her the personal quilt, it will come later on for sure.

    The taggie quilts are a lot of fun for kids, I wish I had learned about them several years ago. Our granddaughter has autism and the texture of her clothes has been a VERY LARGE PROBLEM. In order to help her learn to deal with this, one of the teachers had gathered together such things as cotton balls (soft) sand paper (rough), etc. This eventually helped her to guide us in her clothing selections. (We bought a lot of clothes that were worn only once before we understood her "extra sensitive" nature. As she learned to describe to us her perception of "the feel" of her clothing, we were better able to make selections which were comfortable to her. When she was no older than two years of age, she could strip off clothes faster than we could get her dressed. At the age of fourteen, the first thing she does when she gets home from school is get out of her clothes and into a tee shirt gown. If someone comes over or if she wants to go outside, she quickly re-dresses --- no problem for her. I have made a taggie for my friends granddaughter. We used such things as the tops of socks, blue jean patches, parts of her husband's ties, ribbons, fabrics of various textures, tags from clothing, etc. I was very careful to be sure they were sewn very securely to the base fabric of fleece.
