Babies and Quilts

Babies and quilts seem to be a natural pairing. Both words conjure up soft and cuddly images. When a new baby is expected, there's no better way to mark the occasion than with a small quilt for the crib. From the most basic "cheater" cloth that looks pieced but isn't, to the more complex appliqued quilt, this is an enduring expression of love. What's more, most babies bond with that special square of fabric, and that closeness can last for years. (Many a mother has wondered if her child would be dragging his/her tattered "blanky" to school!)

Even if you're a beginner, this is a great project to work on during pregnancy. In the planning stages, you might want to ask yourself some questions:

• Do you like to sew by hand or by machine?
• Do you want to make the quilt as quickly as possible, or take your time with it?
• Do you prefer to relax with familiar techniques or see this as a chance to learn something new?
