Quilt It, Mom

Baby Bedding from Birch Fabrics

new quilts from birch fabrics!

Look, Mom. I know Dr. What’s-Her-Name says we have to do tummy time, but can you please get rid of that minky-dotty thing you plunked me down on? News flash: It’s polyester.

I was thinking we could try one of Cynthia Mann’s new Birch Fabrics play quilts. So many customers at her Paso Robles store (you’ve been there, right?) wanted to use the prints she carries for baby bedding that she launched a line. And get this: Her materials are 100 percent organic cotton — from the batting on out.

She’s got florals and feathers, bicycles and fishing boats, whales and waves — so many California-dreaming options to choose from. You could even get a matching bumper pad and build a whole nursery around the blanket.

Now that’s something we can both flip over.
