When you bring a personalized handmade baby quilt to the shower, you’ll help the new little baby establish her identity from the moment her quilt first touches her.

There will be lots of mass-produced, foreign-made impersonal gifts at the baby shower that will soon be outgrown, disused and forgotten. Your gift of an oh-so-soft, customized, personalized handmade baby quilt will long be treasured for the thoughtfulness of your choice and the long-lasting pleasure you brought to the baby.
Long after the toys are broken and the clothes are outgrown, personalized handmade baby quilts will be treasured family keepsakes.

Depending on the harmony of the clothing, an imaginative quilter might be able to include fabrics from two loved ones.
