Oh Baby! Quilts and Projects for New Arrivals

Is there any joy greater than welcoming a new baby into the world? Babies give us so much to celebrate, but they require quite a bit of equipment as well! Quilted baby gifts can be easy to make and will be sure to touch a new mom’s heart.

We recently rounded up quilted toys and pre-cut baby quilt kits, and now we’ve gathered a whole list of gift-worthy projects for little ones! If you are lucky enough to be celebrating a new arrival, or know someone who is, here are some of the fun baby related patterns available in the Bluprint shop.

A sweet quilt like this is an obvious choice. Choose fabrics and colors that will coordinate with the nursery theme. Remember to fasten down seams and bindings very well as little toes and fingers will be squirming about. Also, embellishments such as buttons and ribbons can be fun, just make sure they are securely attached so as not to be a choking hazard. Keeping baby safe is just as important as keeping baby warm!

    This article is RUBISH! When you click the links and your Hopes are high… and then BAM, no pattern found. And yes I do have the full membership! And don’t get me started on finding theses patterns on Craftsy, because they don’t exist. Don’t bother clicking anything.

    When can I get the Perfect Prism quilt pattern? I’ve paid full price for membership and I can’t get any of the patterns that I need. Is there another way to get them?
