Babies and quilts go together like strained peas and strained carrots. But in addition to being a child’s well loved ‘blankie,’ a custom quilt can also aid in infant growth and development.
Quilts with contrasting color schemes are a great way to encourage sight development in a newborn. Good fabric choices include bold black, white and red, or, for a more traditional look, mix baby girl pink and baby boy blue with a deep chocolate brown. Custom quilts featuring 3D elements can promote hand/eye coordination in young children, too – request zippers, buttons, ties, etc. be added to your Whimzie quilt design for a fun, yet educational, touch.
Remember the game “I Spy”? A quilt with lots of different colors and fun images is a great way to play – and learn!
