This beautiful, touchable, Braille Alphabet Quilt would be perfect for a vision-impaired child or for any little one you would like to introduce to another alphabet at an early age.
In the center of each Braille Alphabet / Tactile Quilt block, large Roman letters are hand-appliqued in a variety of high-contrast colors. Braille letters are hand-appliqued in red, wide wale corduroy for a distinctive feel. The border of the quilt has many patchwork blocks with either young jungle animals or baby items such as bottles, binkies, booties and bibs. (Coincidentally, they are also alliterative!) These colorful blocks will provide baby with many interesting images to study when he or she has quiet time or is bundled in the quilt . The border is quilted with a rattle design that mirrors the rattle design in the print. The field of this quilt is quilted to designate blocks and create narrow borders between them as well as outlining each Roman and Braille letter.
In the lower two corners of the Braille Alphabet Quilt baby jungle animals are appliqued and embroidered in a friendly, non-threatening way. On one side is a smiling elephant sporting a festive green bow. In the other corner is a smiling golden lion wearing a red heart. In the center of the quilt, in Level One Braille, Psalm 145:13 is embroidered in French knots; a comforting reassurance for baby as well as Mom and Dad.
The batting for this quilt is a cotton/bamboo blend. Bamboo has natural anti-microbial properties that help to protect baby without adding chemicals. This quilt is nicely warm without being hot. It could be used in all seasons. The quilt has not been prewashed. When you do wash it, it will develop that lovely crinkled look that quilts have.
The comforting softness and unique design of this Braille Alphabet Quilt is sure to make it one of your child's favorites and an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
