A Simple Patchwork

I’ve been toying with the idea of making a series of simple patchwork quilts for babies, both for my Etsy shop and for the upcoming Beehive Bazaar.  The idea would be to keep them simple, sweet, and affordable.

Due to time and materials, a quilt like this would run around $100.  I’m still undecided whether or not to move ahead.  Most of my work is known for it’s applique and stands out due to all the detail.  I could put some simple applique on them, a few felt butterflies on this one for example, but that would raise the price another $30 or so.

Would this serve as an affordable option for people who love my work?

I think I love the simplicity of it.

    I think it’s a great option. People love to give baby blankets at showers. I think it’s because they have that feeling of nostalgia when we were little and we HAD to have our blanket with us everywhere, so we know they will have years of love and use. Maybe you could offer one or two matching ones for parents and baby?

    Good luck!

    I really like them. I think about Sylvia and how she takes the quilt Mom made her everywhere. So that make me think they would sell really well because every child needs a good blanky. I also think the simpler the better for a baby because people aren’t so worried about destroying something so pretty. I think adding the appliqué would be a good idea if you want to spice it up. But I love the simple pattern and I wouldn’t want to ruin the simplicity of it. I think if you want to make them fancier maybe taking a simple pattern fabric like the one you have on the back and pairing that with a solid fabric for the patch work. I think that would keep the lovely simplicity but jazz it up a little. The blanket Sylvia has is a simple pattern just jazzed up with patterned fabric and she loves it.
