The 'PERFECT' Baby Gift
Looking for that perfect gift for a baby shower, or perhaps you're wanting a family heirloom for your first grandchild.
Our delightful soft and cuddly handmade baby rag quilt is sure to be that special one of a kind item that will delight not only the mother to be, but become a favorite blanket for that special little one.
This handmade quilt is a beautiful depiction of the nursery rhyme – "March Winds". Of course those March Winds and April Showers bring us beautiful May flowers! Those May flowers have sprung up all over our creation in shades of blue, pink and yellow!
The backside of the quilt is a delicate print of tiny owls, birds and butterflies fluttering among colorful flowers and fruits on a pastel pink cotton flannel. The front of the quilt has prints of soft tiny pink flowers on pink, fanciful pink, yellow and blue colored flowers, as well as a more modern flower print in shades of blues and greens, touched off with a scrumptious creamy soft tone on tone. All stitched with variegated pastel thread.
"LAYERED LIGHTWEIGHT COMFORT"
Our quilts are made of three layers of cotton materials. The top layer is a unique design of carefully selected 100% cotton prints that creates a unique nursery rhyme theme. The back layer is a coordinating 100% cotton flannel print. In between these two layers of nursery rhyme theme story telling prints is another layer of coordinated cotton fabric.
This layering of cotton fabrics creates a lightweight quilt that is perfect for babies and toddlers. Our quilts are not heavy, which allow your baby to have a comfortable sleep.
We all know a well rested baby is a happy baby!
While lightweight, the layering of the cotton fabrics adds to the insulation effect, keeping your little one cozy and warm. Even in warmer temperatures, the quilts are not too warm, as the fabric draws heat away from their little bodies.
"CARE IS A BREEZE"
Our easy to care for quilt is machine washable and dryable. In fact, the more you launder this unique rag quilt the softer the blanket and curlier the seams.. We've already laundered it once to start this "ragging" process.
No dry cleaning bills! No special care costs!
Cotton is the only fabric that is stronger when wet than dry. So our quilts can take repeated laundering and still look fabulous!
As a matter of fact, the more our rag quilts are washed, the softer and more adorable they become.
Those curly little seams you see there between the quilt squares actually get even more curly!
The "ragging" process will produce lint the first few times you wash and dry the quilt. So no need to worry, your quilt is not falling apart, it's simply "ragging".
The attention to detail and craftsmanship makes our baby rag quilts a true quality item. Each fabric selected for the themed quilt is hand cut into 8" squares. This allows us to cut the prints in such a way to create the most beautiful designs.
The printed squares are then laid out carefully to tell a nursery rhyme story. All the coordinating prints must align to create the best picture once they are sewn together.
The squares are assembled in layers, the front print, the middle layer and the back print. Care is taken to be sure that the print for each layered square is laid out correctly so the finished pattern is perfect. The layered squares are sewn together with the seams exposed. the exposed seams are what creates the "rag" design of the quilt.
Once all the squares are assembled, they are sewn together to complete the nursery rhyme quilt.
Beautifully coordinated colored thread is used to put all the pieces together. To make our quilts durable, we sew them with a full 12 stitches per inch.
Once the quilt is fully assembled, the exposed seams are hand trimmed to start the "ragging" process. We hand cut so there is no concern with over cutting too close to the seams.
"THE PERFECT SIZE"
We've taken care to determine the perfect size to make our rag quilts. Each one is 34" x 41" in size, just right to snuggle that newborn into a sound sleep.
They are even the perfect size for your toddler to carry around as their favorite "blankie"! Not too big or heavy for them to manage, while being soft and cozy for nap time.
"NURSERY RHYME THEMES"
Nursery rhymes make our quilts totally unique! Each and every quilt is based on a nursery rhyme. We carefully select each print to tell the story of a specific rhyme.
This quilt is based on the rhyme "March Winds" with its delightful prints of beautiful flowers.
Your quilt can be used to teach your little one this fun nursery rhyme. Or use this theme to create a truly fun and interesting baby room.
Can't you picture it now with lots of beautiful colorful flowers?
