Quilts for Kids 

Products: My Little Vermont Quilts

This Christmas, Jennifer Martin's 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter each found small sewing machines under the tree. That brings them one step closer to being like their mother, who launched My Little Vermont Quilts on Etsy late last year. The online shop, operated out of Martin's Highgate home, specializes in baby blankets, bunting and fabric-based home décor. "I used the name My Little Vermont Quilts because I particularly like doing quilts for kids," she explains. Shoppers from all over the U.S. and Canada have shipped nostalgic childhood items to her for use in personalized memory quilts. "Being a mom, it's just so special to have memories like that," Martin says. What sets her apart from the thousands of other Etsy fabric shops? Affordability — baby memory quilts range from $50 to $80 — and an "anything goes" ethic. Send her onesies and baby socks, or photos and newspaper articles. "I like the challenge," she says.
