Baby Shower Signature Quilt Shower
...a party that creates an heirloom for the baby! 
Baby Shower Signature Quilt
Designed By: Kimberly Lainson

Here is a fun decorative and useful idea for a baby shower signature quilt that will hang above the changing table and hold all the little supplies like... powder, lotion, diaper pins, etc.

 

Then when the baby is older - they can use the cute little pockets to hold their stuffed animals.

Applique: For the watering can, bunnies pattern and pocket how to... Click Here

BABY SHOWER

Be sure to save the GROW square to put the baby's information like: Name, birthday, weight and length... DON'T Let anyone sign this square! Use Pigma Permanent Pens and heat set your signatures...

Directions:
To make rows: Lay all pieces out before stitching. - Top row example - With right sides facing, join a red plaid with a muslin square. Add green plaid to other side then a muslin square, then green plaid, then muslin square, then red plaid. Make three rows this way except the colors will be different on second row.
To make lattice strips: With right sides facing together stitch first black square to plaid strip then a square, strip, etc. Make four rows this way - don't forget that the second row is different colors.
To join rows: With right sides facing, stitch one pieced strip to top edge of a row of blocks. Continue to join rows, separated by strips n this way.

NOTE: Be sure to press open your seams as you sew.
Pockets: Using the pattern (see Applique information) Turn 1/4" around the entire pocket. Stitch the top seam then pin to the muslin square. Stitch around both sides and bottom leaving top open. I embelished the pockets with little bunnies and added a 1/2 moon with the two little bunnies sitting on it. Be creative. I also added another row to the side and bottom to make the quilter larger.
Applique, embroider and embelish - then pin, baste, quilt and bind...

This was a big hit at the shower and also gave the Mommy-to-be a wonderful keepsake memento!


 


Homemade Baby Food

Making your own baby food gives you the distinct advantage of controlling what goes into your baby's sensitive tummy. You determine how much, if any, sugar and spices your baby gets. Even when found on sale for as low as 50 cents per jar, producing your own is a much less expensive alternative to ready made. Making baby food is actually very simple with a few simple tools: a blender, food processor, baby food grinder or similar machine, a steamer or boiling pot, ice cube trays, and a few minutes of your time.
