Have you ever heard about quilts made from baby clothing? We take your babies or grandbabies clothing, generally from their first year of life, and make a quilt out of them. You can use just about anything:
- Tops & Pants
- Booties or bonnets
- Just about anything else made from fabric.
Baby clothing quilts are adorable. These quilts are use in many different ways…
- Saved for the child when they grow up
- The children use them now either on their bed or for a blankie
- Some families use the quilts as a throw for in front of the TV
- Other Mom’s keep them for themselves
You may be thinking about one of these quilts from your own children’s clothing; just keep a big box of all the outfits as they grow out of them. After they turn 1, box up the outfits and send them out to us.
If your children are grown, look through the clothing you have saved. Then decide how you would like to use the blanket. If it is for you, the mom, then you can mix more than one child’s clothing into the quilt. If you plan on making the quilts for your children, then you would want to separate the clothing per each child.
They don’t just have to be your own children’s outfits. If you are like me, you probably have a box of your own baby clothes that your mom saved for you, thinking that you could use them for your own children. But they mainly kept them because they couldn’t bear to part with them. Neither could you if they are still in the basement.
There is one other type of baby clothes quilts we make. These are out of clothing from a deceased baby. Hands down, these are the most special memorial quilts we make. This would make a wonderful gift from the grandmother of the baby.
Baby clothes quilts are one of our favorite types of quilts we make. You put six women in a room with a pile of baby clothing and you get a lot of ahhs and “that’s so cute”. And then when we finish the quilt, we all love to look at them.
