Making a quilt is always a labor of love. When it comes to making a baby quilt, you can be assured that it will most certainly be one of the best gifts you can make for a baby shower or for your own little one on the way. I have a quilt that was made for me when I was an infant that I still have and I passed it down to my own child when she was born. There is just something about quilts that make them heirloom pieces meant to be shared. To get you started on making one for generations, here are 10 free baby quilt patterns.
