Let's Make Baby Quilts! {6/5/15}

Look - I made a baby quilt this week! This is Johnny and you and you can find all of the details in this post.

One of the things I wonder about when I'm making the baby quilts are "appropriate colors." What does that even mean? Some moms don't like pale colors that will show stains. Experts claim that bright primary colors are best for baby's developing eyes....or maybe that was a company trying to pitch their particular line of toys.

When I asked at the pregnancy center, the lady in charge told me that the moms-to-be choose their own quilts and some are thrilled with what she thought were the ugliest quilts imaginable because they were in their favorite colors. So, who knows!

What colors do you use in your baby quilts? Do you limit yourself to juvenile prints? Solids? Whatever you've got on hand?

Your post can be about a baby quilt that's finished, or in progress, or you can be writing about what you have planned,  as long as it's about baby quilts. You're welcome to link to baby quilt posts that aren't brand new, but please don't submit the same post or picture more than once.

I just love your baby quilt! That is a pattern I have not seen done, but it would be easy enough, after I looked at it a minute. I usually use brighter clear colors. A doctor told me that red is the first color cone that develops in a baby's eyes, and pastels are last. I want them to see the colors. =)

That pattern is cute. I believe it is from Bonnie Hunter's book, Scraps and Shirtails II. The pattern is called Criss-Cross Applesauce.
