Corinne Reuter Designs began from observing my two nephews, and is based on three essentials: Learning, Stimulation, and Style. The development of children is fascinating to watch, trying to aid in that process and devise ways to stimulate their eyes, minds, and sense of touch has been so rewarding. With infants immediately seeing only black, white, and shades of gray, it is important to stimulate their little eyes with strong, bold, patterns. The nerve cells in their retina and brain aren't fully developed at this stage, providing eye-catching, high contrasting colors helps their eyes and minds to grow. As the weeks go by they begin to see bright colors with blue and violet developing last and their focus continues to get better and better. Their senses are extremely heightened and watching them absorb the world around them was simply addicting to me! I began to design my quilts to help develop their sense of touch and feelings of comfort, as well as to stimulate their eyes and awaken their imagination. I watched how attached babies become to their blankets and I thought it would be great to have a quilt that would continue to educate them, even as they grew older. Each quilt has silhouetted shapes, pictures or numbers that can later be used as a learning tool. Of course it must be soft and cuddly, so in addition to all of the fun and learning on the front side, the back of the quilts have a super soft minky fabric. The final touch is a satin border edge, which has proven to be soothing to the touch, the satin seems to coo the babies to sleep. There are several quilt designs, and an endless array of beautiful fabric options, that aim to both please and inspire little minds. All the quilts are 100% handmade, by myself! I use different fabric options for each quilt so they are all one-of-a-kind. They are a wonderful product, and a life long keepsake for boys and girls.
