Default New to Quilting and Need Help

Hi Everyone,

My name is Dorothy and I am fairly new to quilting. I just found out I am going to be a grandmother and want to make a baby quilt but need ideas on colors. I am thinking of making two. My first is one that will be stimulating for the baby to lay on and my second will be a bigger one for her bed.

All ideas are more than welcome!

Thank you,
Dorothy

I searched "how to make a baby quilt" and found this page. Scroll down a bit, and you'll find many videos to help you.

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. The videos by Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt co. are a good place to start.

How wonderful to be a grandmother and start quilting!

The nice thing about babies is they are very forgiving

Wrap the child in love of whatever color or patterns are happy and joyous. Or calming. Or both at once, one nice thing about quilts is they have two sides.
