Care Bear Receiving Quilt

This Care Bear Receiving Quilt was made to welcome a good friend’s baby girl into the world. Receiving quilts / blankets are often used in hospitals, birthing centers, and homes to wrap newborns shortly after birth. Swaddling with receiving quilts involves wrapping the baby snugly in the cloth to mimic the feeling of being in the womb, which can help soothe the baby and promote sleep.

Winnie-the-Pooh Baby Quilt

This Winnie-the-Pooh Baby Quilt went to some friends in Canada to celebrate their new baby. It gets very cold where they live so I wanted to send some warm colors that were also soft and playful.
