Gender neutral baby quilt Small Steps

"Small Steps" - unisex baby quilt

I am so exited to present you with a darling unisex baby baby quilt pattern "Small Steps"

"Small Steps" baby quilt

This baby quilt is specifically designed to emphasize the great journey ahead of the little one - the Life. 



"Small Steps" quilt is a very universal baby quilt. When made in unisex colors, it is perfectly suited both for a baby girl and baby boy. For such unisex quilt, I chose neutral color combination - warm grays with bright yellows. Additionally, this pattern supports the use of several fabrics with large prints.

The cutest part of the quilt is the trail of growing footsteps. Footstep appliqué outlines are included in the quilt design but can also be purchased separately. The most beginner friendly way to add footstep appliques to the quilt is to use raw-edge machine applique technique

"Small Steps" quilt pattern contain instructions for a single size baby quilt (43"x43"). This quilt size is large enough to accompany baby through the first one and a half years of their live. When quilt is made out of 100% cotton materials, it is soft, warm and breathable - perfect for a delicate baby skin. Baby wrapped in a baby quilt "Small Steps"

On top of it - baby quilts are just made to hug and cuddle with the little one!

Ans as every quilt, baby quilts need labels. So for this "Small Steps" quilt label, I used a quote by Lao Tzu:

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step"
