Funtastic Baby Quilt

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on April 3, 2009.


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.
