Baby Quilt Patterns
You can find many baby crib patterns to make by searching online. Intricate sewing is not necessary because you should make  these heavily used and heavily laundered quilts to withstand heavy use. Choose fabric with beautiful baby colors and many soft textures that the baby will enjoy. I suggest that you make your own pattern by cutting an assortment of simple squares and assembling them into a pleasing blanket! Follow these suggestions to make a baby quilt that will be treasured for a long time. You can watch the video below to learn how to sew the blocks together!

I also like making baby photos out of materials! These type of quilts are easy to make for beginners and are fast too. If you want to make an amazing gift try this technique!
