Name quilt: Prince

The Name quilt for a soon-to-be-born baby boy is finally finished. No, his name will not be Prince (as far as I know), but as his parents have problems deciding on a name until he’s born, and I’ll see the mother for the last time in a while today, then Prince it is. The mother is a very special person, so it had to be something handmade.

The quilt is made the same way as this one using the letters from my Make a letter tutorial, only leaving the last step (attaching the letters to a light piece of felt) out. The Name quilts are great presents for new and older kids. You can make a few bases when you have some spare time and just add letters and a shape when you need a quick little present. Or, you could make a few Prince or Princesses if you’re surrounded by baby boomers.

Now I’m off to see the mom-to-be; have a lovely Monday!

  1. I love the background, with the quilted stripes, which together with the shadow letters make it look very 3D. Very nice!

  2. I need to make some things for my daughter and was thinking of something with her name.

  3. That's a great gift. I like the suggestion to make the banner quilts in advance. I'm going to do that.
