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!
