it went together very quickly.

Your fabrics are beautiful. But they don't say baby quilt to me. Maybe use something other than batiks? I know I didn't answer your question.

I love your fabrics - a lot of new moms don't really want something that reads BABY. I recently did one called Science Fair by Jaybird designs and it was a big hit.

I love your fabrics, and I think they will make wonderful baby quilts. I just made one that really yells "Baby!!", and I kind of wish I had done something like you are planning. I don't know the new mother at all, but the husband is my nephew. I hope they like a babyish baby quilt!!

Here are a couple of batik baby quilts that I've made. Ocean colors make great fish/frog/turtle quilts.
