Babies and elephants

29 Jul

I’ve made several baby quilts in the past year, all of which have been duly photographed but never blogged. I thought I would remedy this finally. Here’s the first one – a girly quilt made up by blocks of random width strips sewn together.

The lovely animal prints on the quilt top are by Laurie Wisbrun and were bought from her Etsy shop a few years ago. You can see her fabric in action in this Flickr group. I quilted the fabric in simple straight lines and added a solid binding to contrast all the busy animal prints.

The timing of this post is actually fortunate because the recipient of this quilt – the daughter of a long-time friend – will be moving to my neck of the woods next week with her family. Welcome home!

    And she loves it as well! She takes her nap on it whenever we are at home :)
