From My Hands — To Your Heart
As a designer of many a unique keepsake handmade quilt for babies, this quote, “From my hands — to your heart!” was just perfect. I thought of all the little ones that would snuggle in my handmade quilts on those cold winter nights or could play on the homemade quilt instead of the bare floor.
From My Hands
I set to work making each of my handmade baby quilts unique and different. Each of the patterns and color schemes grow and develop from my design board to the sewing machine. The pieces are cut from carefully chosen fabrics and are sewn into the special handmade baby quilts with the best techniques to make them last. These homemade keepsakes are designed to be both durable and adorable.
To Your Heart
Each baby quilt tells its own story, illustrated through color, design, and texture. The quilt starts with a piece of graph paper. Each block design come to life step by step. For example, squares transform into triangles and to each, color and fabric patterns are added. Soon a transformation of a rectangular outline takes on a the design for the next handmade baby quilt. A little girl’s pink ballerina or a boy’s blue trucks and cars are just some of the traditional ideas. While sports, dinosaurs, baby bears and many more in pastels of green, yellow, and lavender continue to the story for comfort with love, care and pride to last for a very long time.
Meticulous stitching and strong bindings are important on these baby quilts because new babies give them plenty of rough use in the cribs, car seats, and playpens in their early months or as play mats as they get older.
