    Introducing my first great-great nephew on the quilt I made him

    I hope I don't get into trouble for posting this quilt a second time but I just couldn't resist. The baby arrived this past week and the new mom sent me a picture of Dashton laying on the quilt I made for him. Mom had requested blue and brown with giraffes. So, this is my creation to meet her requests. I like the quilt but my new great-great nephew is much more precious, don't you think?

    Well yes, I do know what the background fabric is. It is Robert Kaufman's Girl Scouts Screen Print D#9641. I bought a lot of this for my DGD's wedding quilt. She wanted Brown and lime green for her wedding quilt. I thought that I'd need more so I went to the website, www.robertkaufman.com and found a listing for dealers that had the fabric. I bought more and I'm down to about 1 yard left at this point. It's been a great fabric to blend with other colors because there are so many colors in the circles. I bought this a couple of years ago and don't know if you'll be able to find more. But I might go looking, too.
