Baby quilts are the perfect way to celebrate the joyous occasion of giving birth. Most new parents think nothing can beat the simple happiness and pure bliss that come from sharing their child in the loving arms of another woman or child.
A mother can’t help but let her emotions reach out and find the child, cradle, and all, to be in the arms of someone she has known since conception.
That’s why the newborn is always the center of attention during these happy times. That’s why many women struggle to buy a gift for the expectant mom until they have finally found the perfect gift to celebrate the new life. One of those perfect gifts is a perfect baby quilt and that’s exactly what we’ll discuss in this article.
General Sizes Of Baby Quilt
Most baby quilts is based around one specific measurement of the child to be presented in it. For instance, if you’re giving a newborn blanket, most people will go by the number of stitches used.
The size of an infant quilt usually depends on the intended purpose of the baby blanket. In general, the larger the blanket is going to be, the more expensive the blanket will be and the less likely you’ll find a blanket that fits comfortably.
Also, the smaller the blanket is going to be, the less costly it will be and the more likely you’ll find a quilter who will work with a larger blanket and make a quilted blanket of that size.
Baby Quilt Care
When choosing a type of baby blanket, there are a few basic things you should keep in mind.
First, never choose an inexpensive baby blanket because it’s likely to tear up and cause the baby discomfort. Instead, pick a thick blanket that will provide plenty of warmth.
Second, never buy blankets that are too big for your child. If the blanket is too large, your child may not be able to put it around himself. Finally, always buy a quilting machine that is appropriate for your quilting needs, especially if you aren’t handy with needles.
