Pink Large Blocks Handmade Quilt

Sometimes it’s very easy to fall in love with fabrics, which is what inspired us to make this one of a kind Pink Large Blocks Handmade Quilt.

Following the design of our custom baby rag quilts, Pink Large Blocks Handmade Quilt is a handmade custom one of a king lap quilt throw size 50x60 inches, a good size for that small child to grow into and still have a baby quilt around.

The handmade quilt has a variety of all cotton flannel multi-patterned designs, which sometimes get lost in smaller block sizes. The patterns are easy to see in these larger custom quilt blocks, which are finished with hand cut ragged edges.

The all cotton flannel was washed before cut into quilt blocks to ensure the quilt blocks are soft to the touch.

Each handmade flannel baby quilt block is sewn at a diagonal to keep the cotton flannel rugged over the years.

We offer our handmade baby quilts with a free toy to carry good wishes. And what did we pair with this sweet handmade baby quilt?

A little white lamb toy, also soft to the touch with a matching pink nose.

Oh. And a matching pink bow.

But it really was the pink nose.

Precious Memories Baby Crib Handmade Quilt Gift Set

One of Missouri’s successful gift companies is the Precious Memories collection of cards, figurines and other related collectibles started in 1978 by illustrator Sam J. Butcher. His signature illustrations feature teardrop eye characters with sweet positive sentiments now recognized worldwide.

What began as gifts for friends expanded into an extensive line of collectibles with the help of Enesco Company, which made the Precious Moment figurine we added to this one of a kind, made in USA Precious Moment Baby Crib Quilt Gift set.

The approximately 5-inch pre-loved porcelain figures are standing on either side of a tree trunk with two bluebirds perched on top. “I love you” is carved in the center of the tree trunk. The Enesco #-3116 figurine is called “Thee I Love” A Girl and Boy Standing Around A Tree and the value of the collectible figurine ranges from $20-$60.

I wasn’t concerned about the value, I just liked the little bluebirds on top and was happy to find something to keep our Precious Moments Baby Crib quilt.

The brand new baby crib quilt features printed Precious Moments panels with an alphabet theme. C is for cat with a cute yellow cat that reminded me of my yellow Shirley Honey hanging off the blue green letter.

Doesn’t this cat look a little worried?

Dick and Jane Handmade Baby Quilt

Dick and Jane Handmade Baby Quilt

If you were learning to read in the 1930s through the 1960s, the Dick and Jane books were part of your reading list.

According to Wikipedia, Dick and Jane are the main characters in popular readers written by William S. Gray and Zerna Sharp. The main characters, Dick and Jane, were a little boy and girl. Supporting characters included Baby (or Sally), Mother, Father, Spot (originally a cat in the 1930s, but a dog in later editions), Puff the cat, and Tim the teddy bear. They first appeared in the Elson-Gray Readers used in the 1930s, which themselves were heavily revised and enlarged editions of the Elson Readers originally produced by William H. Elson in the 1920s.

The simple but distinctive illustrations for the books were done by artists Eleanor Campbell and Keith Ward. Robert Childress  did the 1950s illustrations, which are the ones featured in this Dick and Jane baby crib quilt printed fabric panel.

Keeping with the theme of the baby crib quilt being based on beginning readers, the backing of this made in US custom baby crib quilt features some of the sentences in the book.

Dick and Jane Baby Crib Quilt has lightweight and sustainable bamboo for filling, making this a lightweight and warm baby quilt.

To personalize, it would be easiest to add an embroidered patch sewn on the back. Another option would be to select a block and add custom embroidery under the Dick and Jane Baby Crib Quilt block.

I can just see a beginning reader curling up with Dick and Jane baby crib quilt and reading along with the sentences on the back!

Personalized Pastel ABC Baby Quilt

I am using this Pastel ABC handmade baby quilt as an example; the principles are the same, which is how to make a handmade quilt personal.

For baby quilts, the easiest way to make a handmade baby quilt personal is to add custom embroidery. There are several combinations possible, the most popular being the baby’s first and middle name, then the birth date.

Some customers also chose to add just a first name, others add the first and last names, and then some have added first, middle and last name.

If you don’t have enough time to get custom embroidery, which can take a couple of weeks, then chose a complimentary toy. The best toy is a baby rattle in complimentary colors to the handmade baby quilt.

Another way to make a handmade baby quilt personal is to add a complimentary toy. (Photo by Charlotte Ekker Wiggins)

If you have access to a family photo, a nice way to personalize this handmade baby quilt would be to add a framed family photo.

To make sure our customers have the information they need, each customer gets a personalized quilt care guide outlining how to wash, dry and store the handmade baby quilt. The name, size and type of handmade quilt is listed on the back of the card.

How do you personalize your handmade quilts?

Custom Alphabet Handmade Quilt

There is no doubt I like alphabet quilts for baby gifts. Not only can they be used in a crib but they can be wonderful wall hangings, easily changing a room into a nursery. The alphabet is also one of the first things kids learn and here it is, easy to refer to and a special part of a child’s early days.

There’s quite a story behind this handmade quilt, starting with what the original intent was with ceramic buttons. You don’t see many on this custom alphabet handmade quilt, which is a story of flexibility and still completing one’s custom quilt design idea.

I was just thinking where would someone even find ceramic buttons these days. I can remember picking some up years ago when my mother would make some of our clothes. The ceramic buttons then where the only “cute” buttons then on the market.

Today there are a variety of plastic buttons with cute themes, much lighter to sew onto clothes.

Each custom alphabet handmade quilt block had cute pre-made appliques, at first it was hard to decide which one to feature. Then I settled on some of my personal favorites - butterflies, bees and bluebirds.

If you can’t make a custom alphabet handmade quilt, you can do something similar with an already-made alphabet quilt like Alphabet in Clouds Baby Quilt. The baby quilt is finished, all you have to do is go shopping for the pre-made appliques. Have fun!

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.

The letters of the alphabet feature wonderful Beatrix Potter illustrations. (Photo by Charlotte Ekker Wiggins)

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.

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.

There’s also space at the top and bottom of the baby quilt to add custom embroidery. (Photo by Charlotte Ekker Wiggins)

Pink Large Rag Blocks Baby Quilt

Flannel rag quilts have been a customer favorite for baby showers, baby gifts and nursery decor. As we were developing the baby quilt designs, we made another larger one to see how it would turn out. Pink Large Rag Blocks Baby Quilt is for that little girl who has outgrown her crib and moved to a big girl bed but still wants a favorite blanket to keep her company.

To entertain her, we picked soft cotton flannel fabrics with interesting designs that compliment that pink color. There are baby quilt blocks with purple flowers, a favorite of several little girls I knew who loved purple as they grew up. Another popular topic is featured in another baby quilt block, butterflies.

Complimentary cotton flannels feature favorite subjects. (Photo by Charlotte Ekker Wiggins)

Not to be forgotten, we also have pink flannel baby quilt blocks with bears, although this gift set has a huggable lamb as the toy instead of a bear.

Bears and flowers are favorite baby quilt topics. (Photo by Charlotte Ekker Wiggins)

These cotton flannel baby quilts are easy to wash in cold water and dry on cool. The fabrics were pre-washed before we made the baby quilts so any shrinkage of the cotton fabrics should already have taken place.

Can you think of someone who would enjoy this baby gift set?

Maybe we should call it a big girl now gift set!

Pooh Adventure Baby Quilt Gift Set Inspiration

Our one of a kind Pooh Adventure Baby Quilt Gift Set includes a Pooh Bear rattle toy.

Pooh Adventure Baby Quilt Gift Set Inspiration

There is a new Winnie ther Pooh movie with Christopher Robin as a middle aged adult about to lose his family because of his work. And yes, the "ther" is the correct reference.

The reviews mention that adults we forget our childhood friends but I am here to say that's not true. I still have my Squeaker Bear and Panda and Bun-Bun Rabbit toys, reminders of earlier days and friends who will always be with me. That was the inspiration for Pooh Adventure Baby Quilt Gift Set

The baby quilt itself was made into a regular lap quilt throw size because baby-themed quilts are hard to find. The larger 50x60 inch size makes this baby quilt appropriate for the older youngsters on your gift list and can easily be something a baby can enjoy as it grows into a toddler.

Pooh Adventure baby quilt can also be easily used as a nursery or room wall hanging.

The bright colors mean the baby quilt will stand up to a lot of washing without fading as quickly as pastel colors do, and the Winnie the Pooh rattle toy is bound to delight any child. It even makes me smile every time I pick it up.

There's also another benefit to this baby quilt, you can easily personalize it by adding someone's name in the "this book belongs to" quilt square. Either custom embroidery or an indelible ink pen will do the trick.

And did I mention this is actually a book? What fun to read the different sections.

My mother and I used to make and sell Pooh Bear toys. I still have one of them keeping me company in my office, complete with the "Hunny" jars I used to make out of styrofoam balls covered in paper mache. Once dry, I would paint them by hand.

Who would have ever suspected then that someday I would actually have bees and real honey.

Primary colors make this charming Noah's Ark Baby Crib Quilt pop!

Noah's Ark Baby Crib Quilt

I know pastel colors are favorite for baby gifts but I recommend bright, primary colors for several reasons:

1. Studies show babies respond more to bright, primary colors.

2. A bright quilt will hold its colors longer through years of washing.

3. Bright quilts are easier to locate when they have been misplaced!

This brand new, charming Noah's Ark baby crib quilt is a printed cotton panel that has been finished with machine quilting for easy care. That means it will survive pulling, wrapping and hugging.

Speaking of hugging, I added a Mama Rabbit holding a baby rabbit as the free toy, seemed only appropriate for a quilt theme of two by twos, don't you think?

A good place to add custom embroidery is under the blue waves and over the XOs.

Favorite Baby Quilt Revisited

Favorite Baby Quilt Revisited

The caller sounded very excited. Her daughter had an all-time favorite baby quilt like the one she found on our website. Her daughter loved it so much that the baby quilt was used as a tablecloth at her wedding reception.

I was intrigued. Must have been a pastel double wedding ring baby quilt, or maybe one of our lovely pastel alphabet quilts. 

Now 11 years after the wedding, the daughter was expecting and Mom was so happy to have found another Daisy Duck baby quilt to give to her granddaughter, almost exactly like the one her daughter loved when she grew up!

Vintage Daisy Duck baby quilt is almost a duplicate of a customer's daughter's favorite baby quilt.

Vintage Daisy Duck baby quilt is almost a duplicate of a customer's daughter's favorite baby quilt.

Daisy Duck, you said??

You bet!

As a fan of Donald, anyone who loves Daisy is a special friend of mine, and to know this is a Mom who is getting the quilt for a granddaughter because Mom grew up with a similar baby quilt and is expecting any day - well, it just doesn't get better.

I remember when I bought this vintage baby quilt. I picked it up from an estate sale because - well, I love ducks, and I love daisies. There is something quite charming about this design, as well as contemporary about the fabric color choices of pink and lime green. When I added this vintage baby quilt to our inventory, I was imagining this as a quilt wall hanging in a nursery, keeping a baby company in a nursery with walls painted yellow. The walls could also have been purple, or green but in my mind, they were yellow.

I should have asked about the nursery wall colors, I thought to myself with a chuckle as I was carefully folding the quilt. 

I packed the Daisy Duck baby quilt in a plastic bag temporarily for safe shipping. No quilts should be kept in plastic for any length of time, they are best stored in cotton, such as pillow cases. I also tucked a yellow duck toy inside to carry the gift tag and quilt care guide to Daisy Duck baby quilt's new home.

The toy also keeps the quilt company on their trip. I mean, honestly, who likes to travel alone?!

Vintage Daisy Duck baby quilt packed and ready to ship with a toy friend.

Although people think of baby quilts in pastel colors, I recommend the primary colors because regular washing will cause the fabrics to fade over time. Start with strong primary colors and the colors will last longer through the lifetime of washing.

Backing for this charming baby crib quilt is a blue and white checked fabric.

Little clown bear will carry the Circus Baby Crib Quilt care guide.

To keep Circus Baby Crib Quilt company, a little bear is wearing a cute clown suit. The bear will deliver the free quilt care guide.

Isn't this applique lion charming?

And what circus is complete without a cat? In this case, it's a sweet lion playing with an applique blue and white ball.

To personalize, there is a 3-inch band of fabrics at the bottom and space over the circus tent to add custom embroidery if you want to personalize this baby crib quilt. This would also make a great way to change out a nursery by using this baby crib quilt as a wall hanging.

New ABC in Clouds Baby Crib Quilt

ABC in Clouds Baby Quilt has been a customer favorite for several years. The detailed machine applique, the hand-quilting and the cloud at the top where the 50x60-inch baby quilt can easily be personalized with custom embroidery all contribute to this being a great baby gift.

These brand new, baby crib quilts are good gifts for both boys and girls.

They are made in India and can take several months to get shipped to the US. This is one of several brand new baby crib quilts we recently added to our baby quilt inventory.

I will be featuring some more of our new baby crib quilts shortly.
