Baby Quilt Patterns

Is there a new baby in your life? As a quilter, the first thing you need to do is decide which baby quilt pattern to stitch. Most of the time, baby projects are small, so they don't take a lot of time -- or fabric. Look around at thrift stores or garage sales for vintage fabric, and then download one of the free quilt patterns. Whether you choose to make a baby blanket, a nursery decoration or a quilted toy, you can make a really special baby shower gift -- without spending a lot of money!
