The Strip and Flip quilt is my favorite!

My first Grandchild is due in November...this is the top for the first of what I am sure will be many quilts! We still don't know what "flavor" we are getting so it's a challenge to stay gender-neutral! This Vintage circus-themed fabric was scrap from making some bibs and booties for others!

style, theme and then the colors. most of my baby quilts that I make I already know the sex. so it is easy for me to select the design and colors. I always do things a bit different than the pattern just to be one of a kind..


I look for something that has a great pattern, a great colour scheme, and definitely durability. "Baby" invokes softness, cuddliness and general snugability!

Style and durability. It has to be able to hold up for a baby. Thanksbr /

I really want to make a rag quilt so I appreciate the instructions. I have heard they are very warm. When I see patterns I an attracted first to color then to pattern. I recommend to make a child's quilt bigger than they are when you make as they usually want to use it longer than you would think,..probably until they are pre-teen. Karen

Hi michiganquilter201 4 9823042 and congrats! You are the winner of our comment contest. Our editors will be in touch shortly. Kaylee, Editor

The style of the quilt is what catches my eye.

I focus on durability a good baby quilt has to last through 5 years of heavy use.

Durability is important, but its fun to create a baby quilt that has such style that it grows with the baby.

I think durability is a must. Baby quilts are frequently handled and washed, and, while style and ease to make are important, if it doesn't hold up in use, time and creativity are wasted.

Style is the most important, ease or not, depends on the quilters experience, I think there should be models for every beginner or advanced quilter.

I look for style then colors that work with the Moms wants.

Style definately.

Style for sure and then ease but if I like it enough I will try it no matter how hard the pattern.

Style, then ease (as a VERY close second), then durability...though I'm often drawn to the colors of the sample quilts...

style first and ease second.

I look for all 3. But love making rag quilts for the special baby.

I look for ease and then pick colors that the mom has said she wants

I usually pick the pattern for each special mom baby! Style, ease, or durability are all important factors!
