Scrappy Houses Baby Quilt

I used my scraps to make four “houses” for this baby quilt.   The quilt has many points of interest:  color, shapes, objects to find.  It is machine pieced and quilted.  It is 35 in X 42 in.  I have given it to a nurse who works at the surgery center where I do most of my procedures.  I tried to make the quilt of interest to either a boy or girl as I didn’t know which she was having.

Here is a close up of one of the blocks.  I love the weight-lifting gator on the beach.
Here is another one of the blocks.  Notice the flowers, faces, trees.
The back of this quilt is a soft flannel with dogs.

Hey R, I still am amazed at how easy you live between the medical world and your world of quilting and sewing. Good to have such passion!

That being said, this was my favorite quilt to date that I saw on your posts! Awesome. I want one.
Have a good weekend.
