When I make a baby quilt, It's usually NOT going to be for just the baby stage.
I want the quilt to be loved, laid on, slept with, cuddled with, washed, and ready to go again!
My HOPE is it will be a well loved item of the child's.
My children each had a favorite blanket while growing up.
I remember only being able to wash them while my children were not using them, it could be kind of tricky!
