I don't know about you but I love giving handmade gifts. I know the heart, sweat and maybe some tears, that goes into making a handmade item. So when I have the chance to give one, it makes that gift extra special.
I have made a lot of baby quilts over the years for friends, family and customers, and it was always such an honour to be asked to make something so special for their little one. I love knowing that their new quilt will be a part of their childhood, and who knows, maybe they will have the chance to hand it down to their kids.
However, sometimes we do not have the time to make a handmade gift. That's where these Wholecloth Quilts come in. They are the perfect quick, yet cozy, handmade gift for any newborn, 1st birthday or even 5th birthday. You can customize the size, fabrics, and even personalize it with their name.
We have selected a few options for you to choose from for your next project, click here to search through our Wholecloth Quilt Kits. Each kit comes with the top and backing fabric, plus binding. All you need to supply is the thread, batting and a few hours to whip this baby up.
Plus you can add our Name Applique option to your quilt to personalize it with their name. Click here to see all of the available fonts.
( I made this quilt for my daughter when she was born. This font is not available at this time)
Also, included in each kit is a downloadable PDF explaining how to baste your quilt. If you are needing more information on how to finish your quilt, such as binding and quilting, here are some links to help you:
1. Shannon Fraser has two amazing blog posts on binding. The first post breaks down how to make the binding and also how to attach it to your quilt. The second is how to hand sew it down.
2. If you would like to machine bind your binding down, Cluck Cluck Sew has a great post on how to do that!
3. Lastly, if you are new to this and have never finished a quilt, Craftsy has a blog post with lot of helpful information on how to straight line quilt your quilt together.
Thank you so much for reading!
