Friendship Quilt

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2003


A simple activity at a baby shower can yield a wonderful keepsake for the mother and baby. Set up a table at the party with squares of fabric in a range of colors that go well together (these can coordinate with the nursery theme), along with fabric pens, and a sign inviting each guest to write her initials on a square. After the shower, a talented friend or family member can embroider the initials, then stitch the pieces together to make a quilt (or send the pieces to a professional quilter).
