Beatrix Potter Baby Alphabet Quilt Gift Set
Do you recognize these characters? These are part of my childhood memories, illustrations of animals in a garden by Beatrix Potter.
According to Wikipedia, Helen Beatrix Potter (11866 – 1943) “was an English writer, illustrator, conservationist and natural scientist best known for her children's books featuring animals.
Born into an upper-class household, Potter was educated by governesses and grew up isolated from other children. She had numerous pets and spent holidays in Scotland, developing a love of landscape, flora, and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted.
Though Potter was typical of women of her generation in having limited opportunities for higher education, her study and watercolours of fungi led to her being widely respected in the field of mycology. In her thirties, Potter self-published the highly successful children's book The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Following this, Potter began writing and illustrating children's books full-time.”
My grandmother introduced me to Potter books. Although I couldn’t read English at the time, I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations and made up my own stories about the characters illustrated in the books.
This brand new, made in USA Beatrix Potter Baby Alphabet Quilt celebrates the Potter animals through the letters of the alphabet.
To turn this into a gift set, we added a Wedgwood plate featuring Mama Rabbit feeding a sick Peter, a great addition to a nursery wall.
Back to the baby quilt, which features printed panels of Potter’s wonderful illustrations. The quilt blocks are pages from her alphabet book, including the front page of the book.
We included the dedication page so you can easily add custom embroidery and personalize the baby quilt.
Knowing options are nice to have as well, we added space at both the top and bottom of the Beatrix Potter Baby Alphabet Quilt where custom embroidery can be added. To tie the quilt blocks together, an ivy leaf pattern finished this lightweight baby quilt.
Since we started with Peter Rabbit, it only seems appropriate to include the rabbit in the last baby quilt block.
This brand new baby quilt also includes typical baby colors including reds, pinks and greens so the baby quilt should nicely blend into any baby nursery.
