10 Quilted DIY Tutorials for the Nursery

It was 2009 and my first child had just been born at the beginning of a long cold winter. With a full year of maternity leave ahead of me and nothing but time to care for and love-up my Little Big Spirit Running – my obsession handmade baby products, specifically baby quilts, layette and fabric began.

I started up my own handmade business and delved deep into learning how to sew among many other things revolving around my product line and running a small business. It was incredibly hard and deeply satisfying my time as a full-time artisan, and though I’ve made the bittersweet decision to end that chapter – my love affair with crafting, making handmade goods for babies and toddlers remains.

It may not be winter everywhere this roundup may find you – but the beautiful thing about quilts is that they are timeless and perfect for every season! Enjoy the looking and creating…
