    "Groundhog Baby" quilt

    My friend's newest grandchild is due on February 2nd and is being called the "Groundhog Baby" in their family. She asked me to make a quilt based on Margaret Rolfe's foundation pieced animal designs, but with a groundhog as the central creature. I modified several patterns (I changed a zebra into a deer, a dog into a fox and put the owl into a tree) and came up with the central groundhog on my own. Most of the critters are made of cotton fabric, but the groundhog is fleece and the bear is flannel. The whole quilt is 39" square.
