If you decide that you would like to learn baby quilt making , here are some tips.

  1. Although synthetic materials are often used, the lining should  be made of soft cotton, as baby’s skin is delicate and synthetic fabric causes reactions.

  2. Traditionally, quilts were made of worn out clothing and scraps, but for a baby, be sure to use new, high quality materials.

  3. Prewash fabric to be sure that it is colorfast.

  4. Use a fluffy batting to help keep the baby cozy.

 

How to start?  It is not difficult.

Techniques

  1. Buy 3 yards of cotton, select coordinating colors and designs. Nursery prints are great for baby quilts. Purchase all the other items you need from the list.

  2. Pre-wash the textile separately. Be convinced that the colors are fast and textile does not shrink. Iron it with the spray starch. Be sure to iron out any wrinkles.

  3. Add a complementary binding to the quilt.
