There is nothing quite as sweet as a handmade baby quilt. Not only are they fun to create, they are beloved and cherished by the recipients, making a truly special gift. As a quilter, what is so great about creating baby quilts? They are small and take less time to make than larger quilts! Since they aren’t too big, they are the perfect quilting project for trying new patterns and techniques.
