Kids Quilts for Holiday Presents
December is pushing hard at my time, but I have several lap quilt TOPS finished and/or waiting for their borders. They will all be quilts for children in the family and presents for others outside the family. I’ve been having so much fun making these quilt tops. Now for the finishing. I will be putting fleece on the back of almost all of the quilts. The one baby quilt may or may not get a fleece backing, I’m also leaning towards flannel.
I saw on Kaye’s Quilting Friends last night how to make faux chenille quilts and it was so beautiful. I may try my hand at that since I bought the tool this past spring. It should make a soft and cuddly baby quilt. I have six quilt tops sewn already. I need another boy quilt. I’ll take pics this weekend.
The baby quilt is a customer request, I do make quilts for profit to a select few customers. Other than that I don’t want to become a production line sewer. It’s fun to challenge myself with customers that leave the design to me, just say it’s a boy or girl and let me create. Oh and I do take in consideration the age, and present room decor if they have a preference. Lots of people are straying away from traditional baby colors and that’s fine by me.
I have never disappointed so far. This new baby in Feb. is a girl, and the chenille will be sweet. I like trying new things.
