Summer is a great time for small quilting projects. I love making small lap quilts and baby quilts. Not only are they great handmade gifts, but they give you the opportunity to practice new techniques on a much smaller scale than a larger quilt. Here are 10 fun quilt patterns for baby. Most of them are free and all of them are very sweet!
My favorite source for free quilt patterns is FaveQuilts.com. FaveQuilts is dedicated to the best free quilt patterns, tutorials, tips and articles on quilting. From easy quilt patterns to complex quilt patterns, they offer the best free quilt patterns from all over the web.
FaveQuilts also features my current quilt block series, Words to Live By for those of you that may love to mix a bit of embroidery into your quilting.
