Twelve Beautiful Handmade Quilts For Baby’s Nursery

When preparing the nursery for my first two babies, I had a lot of fun picking out the crib bedding for the rooms.  The bedding for most is the centerpiece of the nursery, and is the item that color schemes and decor is usually based off of.  The first two times I went with the standard issue matching crib blanket, not even giving it a second thought.  But when I became pregnant with my third, I knew I wanted simple white crib bedding, and a unique handmade quilt. I’ve fallen in love with the handmade movement the past few years and I knew that a handmade quilt would be the perfect way to support a handmade artist, and add a bit of uniqueness to our baby’s room.  If you love handmade quilts as much as I do, here are twelve of the most gorgeous handmade quilts out there, made by some very talented quilters.
