4 Ways Handmade Baby Quilts Can Be Personalized

By Sharon Camp
custom baby name quiltThere was a time when engraved initials were the only way you could make a gift personal, but that’s before handmade baby quilts for boys and girls let you personalize your gift in several different ways. Here’s how:

1. Choose a Design that Reflects the Family’s Lifestyle

When you shop for a one-of-a-kind home-made baby quilt, the quilter will have a selection of designs that match the family’s hobbies and pastimes. For example, if football is their passion, there are quilts that have helmets and footballs worked into the pattern. And if they love to go sailing, there’ll be a quilt with little sailboats skimming on a pale blue watery field. There are numerical motifs for the math fanciers, and floral interpretations for the garden lovers. For the campers there are styles that incorporate denim, and for the travel fans there are motifs with cars and trains and buses.

2. Select a Quilt with Loved Ones’ Clothing

Perhaps the new little babies’ grandparents have passed on, or they’re too far away to visit often. That’s the right time for a baby quilt that’s made with some of their clothing. Maybe a favorite t-shirt or a party dress can become part of the quilt that their new grandchild will cuddle. As long as the keepsake fabric is in sync with the soft baby flannel in the rest of the quilt, you can supply the little one with a wonderful reminder of far-away loved ones who can be part of the baby’s life even when they’re not there.

3. Opt for a Quilt that Matches the Nursery or Home Decor

How much fun will be to harmonize an unusual homemade baby quilt with the new baby’s surroundings from the get-go. If her nursery decor features butterflies, her very own butterfly quilt will reflect her environment. And if the little boy’s room is a cavalcade of circus animals, his cuddly crib companion can be just as jaunty as the walls. If the newborn will live in a house with country charm, how fitting for him to be snuggling with a traditional patchwork quilt.

4. Add the New Baby’s Name or Initials

When you are planning this very special baby gift with the quilter who will make it, you can have the baby’s initials or name included in the design. Now here is the ultimate way to make your gift as personalized as possible. Perhaps you’ll elect to have subtle initials sewn into a corner, or your preference might be a dramatic display of the baby’s name. Either way, you will be giving that precious new baby a warm and cuddly quilt that tells her she’s something very special.

When you buy a customized baby quilt from a quilter who can meet your needs, you’ll be buying a present like no other, and you’ll be giving that baby a unique treasure that will be used every day and never lose its appeal.

Come and choose one our handmade children’s quilts, a lasting keepsake, a unique birthday gift, or Christening gift, for that special “little one.”
