Nap and NodNap and Nod: 12 Adorable Baby Quilts
By Myra Harder

Nap and Nod proves that sewing baby quilts can be both fast and fun. The sweet polar bear quilt on the cover, “Twinkle, Twinkle,” would be a perfect wintertime baby gift. The simple design makes a big impact but comes together quickly thanks to large-scale appliqué. “Gift Wrapped” is another ideal Christmas baby quilt with a design reminiscent of a ribbon-wrapped Christmas present. It’s also super easy to personalize with a little one’s first initial.

  • I just finished a "floor quilt" for a great-grand-nephew due in December and am working on nap quilts for 2 toddlers who joined the family through adoption this fall. Bright colors seem to capture their attention best, which plays right into my quilting fabric preferences!

  • Not sure if I will be sewing quilts for little ones this coming year, but I have some tempting St. Patrick’s Day themed fabric that might make a great start for a little Irish lassie!
