In the first place, the guests will applaud your cleverness in choosing a personalized homemade baby quilt with an original sports design. They’ll admire your talent for finding such a personalized baby gift that’s a stand-out from all the rest. Your quilt will not be in the heap of conventional baby outfits that will soon be outgrown and forgotten, nor will your quilt languish in the pile of conventional baby gear that will soon be obsolete. Everyone at the event will be quick to admit that the adorable baby quilt you brought along, with its years of use ahead, is the MVP of the day.
The Family Will Rave
In like manner, the sports-loving family has to put their hands together for the handmade baby quilt you bring into their midst. They’ll appreciate the one-of-a-kind design that takes baseballs, footballs and soccer balls and pairs them with coordinating prints for an overall effect of baby-appropriate sports celebration. Granddad will be pleased to see the football in the design, since he was a first-stringer back in the day. And Grandma will enjoy the tennis racket that represents a sport she still plays.
Equally important, Mom will be so happy to wrap her new little rookie in a quilt like no other. She’ll realize the quality of the hand-made quilt with the sports motif, valuing the meticulous craftsmanship that went into its assembly, and knowing that such workmanship will insure the quilt’s long life as it withstands not only the punishment of the washer and dryer but the necessary roughness it might have to endure in baby play.
Dad knows this Quilt’s a Winner
Let’s face it. Few of the baby outfits and nursery equipment that come to the shower will really delight the new dad. But a homemade baby quilt with a one-of-a-kind sports theme will gladden his heart. He can see himself on the couch, cradling his quilt-wrapped baby while they watch a game together. Or maybe the sports quilt will keep the baby warm while they root for their team in the stands. And when he recounts stories of his sports idols, his little toddler will cuddle with a quilt that illustrates.
Baby Has a Champion
Also consider, the newborn’s going to love to cuddle with a baby quilt made with the softest baby flannel, and later, as he (or she) learns about the joy of sports, his personalized quilt can remind him of all the fun ahead, playing and watching.
The Quilt Will Be Prized for Generations
Finally, there’s no end-of-season for the sports theme baby quilts you choose. Baby can enjoy the quilt for years, as a car blanket, a play mat, a lap blanket at story time. And when it’s time to retire, these sports theme baby quilts can be packed away and come back for a new sibling or for this baby’s babies in the future.
