I love quilts because they're so cheery. I have some from my family and have made a few simple ones. I love making them for babies and wash everything in hot water and dry it in a hot dryer so that it's preshrunk and the parent can toss it in the wash without worrying.

Wrenn, that is one of my pet peeves-people who put quilts you give them up and won't use them because they think somehow they are "special." I want them cuddled and usedand loved and washed to eventual shreds. They are really pretty tough.

I told the parents that the highest compliment to the quilter was to use it as much as possible. One of mine had the honor of being the 'lovey' for 2 babies.
