Quilts are Expensive! pt. 1

Quilts are expensive. Fabric is expensive. Quilting your quilt is expensive!  I think the biggest misunderstanding about handmade items are usually the time and price put into creating and making the items.  I have so many friends who say they want me to make them a quilt.. which I LOVE to do--but I don't think they are realizing that most of the time they are requesting a $200 gift!  If I had the ability to make a quilt for all of my favorite people for every single occasion, I would do it--I just can't!  So since many people don't want to or can't spend the money on a quilted quilt, I wanted to show more cost effective options I have been working on! In this post, I am going to focus on a cost friendly baby quilt!

Option 1:  Cost friendly baby quilt!

This baby quilt is one of my favorite projects I have worked on for one of my favorite friends (I feel like I say that with every project these days.. lol)!  The cost of all of the materials was around $80 and it took me about 6-7 hours to complete this quilt start to finish.  The friend I made this for had a specific theme she was going for in her nursery so the fabric was super important and on the higher end!  Making a quilt like this one depending on the fabric used would be between $80-$120 -- which can be up to a $60 savings!

This quilt is the perfect option for fabric that needs all of the attention.  Being able to pick out lavish quilting designs is one of my favorite things, but what I love about this quilt is the simplicity and how the fabric is the main focus.  I have to say I am already excited to pick out my next baby quilt to use this technique on! Comment below if you would like me to add quilts with this technique for sale!

If you are needing a quilt super quick & cost friendly--this is the most perfect quilt for you!  Keep your eyes peeled for the next cost friendly quilt option I will be blogging about soon. ;)
