    I made a rag quilt. I used different kinds of prints for the front; trucks, animals, I love grandma, etc. for the back I used pastels but you could use dark bold colors too. I then cut out appliques of butterfiles, frogs, etc and put them on the back. The reason for this was that the quilt makes a great item for them to lie on but for the first few months you might not want them lying on the fringe so I put the appliques on the back for them to have something to look at. It also gives you a place to sign it and put the childs name on it. The quilt was in the end reversible and it was very much used and loved by parents and child that recieved it.

    I just took a class for the trip around the world with Norma Campbell. It's for the freedom twins for the injured soldiers. I only have the pattern for the size that is needed for them so do you have the pattern for a crib size one. I'd love to do that. I decided to take the Christmas material that I've been collecting for the past couple of years and make one called Santa's Sleigh Ride; some thing like that to indicate the trip around the world.

    When I make a baby quilt, the only question I ask of the parents is what colors are you using in the room. Then I try to coordinate a quilt so it can be used (color coordinated) with the room. If they aren't sure, I stay away from blues and pinks. I have fabric for my next one and it will be done in soft greens and peach. Pattern - undecided.

    I always like to choose a favorite children's book and make a quilt based on the story. Then you can give the book and the quilt. Later you get to share the story with the quilt recipient.

    anything with bright colors, you could do any pattern, but bright colors are great for little ones....OR if you applique, machine or by hand, there are such cute free applique patterns on the web, such as turtles, animals, trucks, cars, trains, just anything for the little....congrats on your addition, and good luck with the quilt.....

    Babies respond to high-contrast colors, like black and white. Just adding another idea...

    I did an A-B-C quilt I got from a kit. I got it from my LQS, but you can find it here - http://www.americanjane.com/kits.php

    It came together really fast, and it looks so cute when finished. Best part is, the label is pieced into the quilt, so no one can remove it over the years, without ruining the quilt!

    I try to make baby quilts with different textures as well as colors, so I use bright colors in cottons, satins, velvets, chenilles, whatever has a different texture. What little boys don't love trucks and trains. Good luck and have fun with it.
