    Baby /Childs quilt or wallhanging?

    Hi-I have recently designed this baby quilt from scratch -first time!!..BUT, I also added embroidery from my new Janome to the panels, which i thought was OK. I had a few teething problems along the way , unpicked a quite a few seams, got a headache but redid it lol. Anyway I have not sandwiched it yet as I am undecided about backing, I have some lovely blue and white minky fabric which would look pretty on the back for a child, its so lovelya nd warm, but if I decide its going to be a wallhanging the Minky is a bit of a waste, as I could just back it with white or blue, as it wont bee seen.
    I cant decide if this quilt would look too fussy for a childs quilt or not? What do you think? I have put in a few pics below. Would love to know..I know the elephants are a bit crazy- they are going to be appliqued on today..the fabric is Free Spirit Karavan but I fell in love with it

    I love everything about this quilt! The elephants are adorable, and the fabric is perfect! I would definitely consider this a child's quilt, and I think any child would love it. Of course it would make a wonderful wall hanging, but why put it on a wall, when a child can enjoy and treasure it for years to come? Great quilt, nice job!

    FABULOUS quilt!
    I vote for the child being able to use it.

    Wow, very striking! Lucky you on the embroidery option too! Looks like a lot of fun here!

    Beautiful quilt. I understand you questioning whether it should be for a baby or not. I am not sure. I think maybe an older child or teen would like it. It's really gorgeous but not baby-like to me.
