    Thankyou!Yes, i know what you mean-its really more of a childs than a babby. I didnt think of age when I made it, tbh I designed it around the elephants, so it sort of unfolded as I went along !
    I think thats why I didnt know whether it was more of a wallhanging..definately an older child's maybe

    It will be fine to start out as a Baby quilt, since Babies grow so fast. Very pretty quilt.

    What you have is an adorable non-traditional baby/child's quilt. I love it! I wouldn't hang it, I'd give it to a special child who will love it every day. You did a great job.

    It's beautiful! I think I would rather it be used by someone who would love it rather than hanging on a wall. A baby may not 'appreciate' it at first but would certainly love it as the child grew. Just a great job! You should be proud!

    I love the originality of it ... and my vote goes definitely to minkeeeeeeeee!
    (I want it on a quilt for me!

    Lots of parents are planning the baby/child decor away from traditional looks now, and this would be perfect for one to USE!

    That being said, you didn't tell us the size ... if it's small, then it can become a wall hanging after the child outgrows it. If it is larger, it could be used for years.

    Just be sure that it goes to someone special who will appreciate it as much as we do!!!

    oh, I love the elephants and they go really nicely together with the embroidery! And I vote for quilt rather than wallhanging and then the cuddly minky backing!
