    I am helping a friend make a baby quilt for her new (soon-to-be) grandchild. Can you give me some cute sayings to embroider on it? I'm having trouble coming up with something adorable. The main theme of the quilt is the alphabet, but I don't have to stick with that theme.

    Are you embroidering in solid blocks?
    How about the first two lines or more of nursery rhymes like -
    Jack Be Nimble
    Row, Row, Row Your Boat
    Pat-a-Cake
    Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

    or one of these short verses: (if you want the whole verse PM me for rest of words)

    Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep...
    Star Light, Star Bright...
    I See The Moon & the Moon See Me...
    A Baby is a blessing, a gift from above...

    Hi there,

    I'm making a quilt for my new niece and I need some suggestions for the label, I'm not a cutsie person and Id like to write something a little quirky or weird while welcoming her to the family. any ideas?

    Not quirky, but my favourite for charity and give away quilts,especially when the gender is not known.

    The best kind of sleep beneath heaven above,
    is under quilt handmade with love.

    Quilted by....etc.

    Not really sure if this is along the lines of what you would like, but I'm always telling my kids that hands are for helping.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
