Visualizing Your Project
One of the hardest things to do is visualizing a project through to completion without a pattern model, pictures or instructions. Sometimes just a picture will help inspire your creative undertaking, but when it comes to your baby you want something tried and true, with instructions.
These baby quilt patterns and soft-sculptures are some of the most unique freebies offered online. Free patterns are included for baby boys and baby girls, as well as shared themes, for both beginner and advanced quilters.
