Funtastic Baby Quilt

My husband has a friend who’s wife is pregnant with their first baby. He asked me to make a quilt for them. I had recently used this pattern for another baby quilt and loved how it came out. So I chose to use it again. The quilt is 42 in X 48 in. It is machine pieced and quilted. Not knowing whether the baby is a boy or girl, I tried to use lots of different colors and points of interest.

Here is a detail photo to show some of the points of interest: a pink elephant, an angel, a lamb, some trees, and some fishing flies.

Here is another detail photo to show more of the points of interest: a wheel, a sign, zebras, a purple camel, and a bird bath.

The young couple live in Texas, so I decided it was okay to use this lovely fabric even if the baby turns out to be a girl. I hope they agree.

You are so generous - and you seem to turn out quilts so fast! You are an inspiration to me. I saw a really cute paper pieced cowboy boot pattern this week. That backing fabric would be perfect in that! blessings, marlene

I loved this pattern when I first saw it, and still do. I want to make one in this style. The baby who receives this is well-blessed by your creativity and generous spirit. You are amazing!

Oooh, this is way cute! They will love playing I Spy with the fabrics that have pictures. I always love seeing the perfect backing fabric, too. I never use muslin!
