Four 70s Crib Quilts

Alphabet quilt made with cotton print fabrics
Yes, they made crib quilts in the 1970s! And just like the full-sized quilts, many are tied comforts made of double-knit polyester. Here are some pictures of the quilts I've found recently.

"Baby Girl" quilt made of double-knit polyester
"Baby Boy" quilt made of double-knit polyester
"Silly Goose" quilt, a log cabin variation made of cottons


  1. Amazing that you found these and what a variety! On the Nightly News the other night, the statement was made that nothing except the baby should be in a crib: no toys, no pillows, no blankets, no quilts, no top sheets due to danger of suffocation. This is a sweeping change to past thinking on the matter but one way to prevent infant death.

  2. I, too, was struck by the variety, and by finding four of them in a relatively short period. I'm sure the babies loved them. Even the double-knit examples have soft fabric on the back. It's sad to think babies won't be able to enjoy quilts, blankets, etc., in their cribs. I would've been a little lonely without my blankie.
