Sew Santa sew! Quick Christmas quilts to make for baby (+ sale)


Christmas is right around the corner. Google says only 77 sleeps left. And who is more excited to experience the magic of Christmas than the littlest of littles in our lives—babies and other tiny tykes!

Monogrammed-quiltWhat better way to show a little one your love than to stitch up a gift that they can snuggle, cuddle, wrap up in, play on, and otherwise make their favorite blankey of all time? We can’t think of one. And with 77 sleeps left until Christmas, you can easily whip up a stack of baby quilts from our adorable eBooks on sale this week.

We love this sweet Peas in a Pod design—and the circles provide a built-in way to personalize it. Use the circles for names, dates, initials, appliquéd shapes, or anything else you can dream up. The letters and numbers in the quilt are made of plush fabric—fuzzy fun for tiny fingers.

Warm WelcomeWarm Welcome: Cozy Quilts for Baby
Mary Hickey

Choose two shades of one color and two shades of another, add a background fabric, and you’re on your way to stitching Mary Hickey’s Petite Trellis quilt. This repeat-block quilt is super-simple to piece, and it’s perfect for pinks, blues, and more gender-neutral colors.

Just as much as we love the quilt, we love what Mary Hickey says about creating quilts for babies: “Of course quilts provide warmth for the babies that we love. More than that, though, quiltmaking allows us to make a piece of art that expresses our dreams for our tiny friends.”

Mary’s Bright Garden quilt is both timeless and fun. The traditional Chimney Stone block gets a vibrant makeover, and strip piecing makes for an easy sewing spree from start to finish.

Plus, Mary’s bright color choices are just right for girls or boys. Too cute!

These fantastic crocheted sea creatures live a double life! On land they’re fun and friendly playthings; toss them in the tub and they transform into squishy tub toys to delight and entertain little ones at bath time. Each toy is made from cotton yarn, terry cloth, and natural sponge stuffing. Our favorite vignette from the book finds Dudley the Diver sharing sea space with a spirited Dolphin.

(New to crochet? No matter—in addition to project directions, basic how-to-crochet instructions are included. You can dive right in!)
