Free Baby Quilt Patterns So Easy That Even Beginners Can Make a Quilt for Baby

The hobby of quilting may experience rises and falls in popularity, but baby quilts are always considered a thoughtful, stylish gift. Hand piecing and tiny stitches have been challenged with machine quilting or tied quilts, but not replaced. There will always be quilting circles that enjoy not only the finished product, but the pleasure of gathering with other women to catch up news as well as the pride in the finished product.

Patchwork crib quilts are desirable because they are beautiful and because the comfort of a cotton quilt is beyond compare.

A baby quilt makes a lovely gift and I would encourage you to try your hand at quilting your own using one of the free baby crib quilt patterns that I have in my list below. Buy some quilt fabric and try your hand at creating a precious keepsake. Handmade crib quilts make unique baby gifts that will truly shine at the baby shower.

If you know the colors and pattern of your friend’s baby bedding set, a homemade crib quilt can be personalized not only with an embroidered name, date and perhaps a baby poem. You can design your baby quilt to mimic the theme, color and style of decor in the nursery. The crib comforter probably won’t be tucked into baby’s memory box, but you can bet that your handmade crib quilt will have a special place of honor.

Old Fashioned, Homemade Quilts for the Modern Baby
You might wonder why in these days when modern decor is all the rage that moms don’t consider kids quilts old fashioned. The answer would be that quilters take pride in developing new quilt patterns in trendy, fashionable styles. Vintage, floral applique quilt patterns will always be popular, but there are just as many funky, bold quilts in bright colors in the frames as there are quilts based on antique patterns and designs of the past.

We keep quilting those little quilts generation after generation because they are so very beautiful to see and so comforting to the touch. With some tweaking, we can adapt traditional quilt designs to blend with fashionable color schemes and styles of bedroom decor. By softening the color palette and adjusting the sizes, most any quilt design can be used for crib quilts.
