Personalized Pastel ABC Baby Quilt Gift
I have lost track of how many personalized baby quilts we have finished and shipped for this customer and it’s always fun to work with her.
This time it was a new grand niece and she wanted some suggestions for a “non-girly pink” baby quilt. After going through several options, we settled on Pastel ABC Baby Quilt, a customer favorite over the years for both boys and girls. Frankly it has also been a personal favorite when I give a baby gift quilt.
One of the frequent questions customers ask is how much of the baby’s name should be included. My answer is that is a matter of personal taste. We have some customers who add first, middle and last names, others who just include the first and middle names. In this case, the customer only added the first name but in a 2” font size, which is a nice way to celebrate the new family member.
Because she didn’t want pink, I suggested a matching lavender for one of the fabrics included in the baby quilt.
Once the name was settled, it’s my turn to make some choices about the free toy to include. Since she didn’t want anything pink I settled on this cute fabric mouse with only a pink nose to carry the customers good wishes.
Sometimes customers give me a hint on what to include, such as suggesting a cat or dog toy. Without a suggestion, I try to match something the customer has told me about the family. And yes, sometimes this step takes me the most time, it’s like going on a treasure hunt through the information I have heard to find something appropriate.
The nice thing about Pastel ABC Baby Quilt is that there are a lot of color options!
