    Love your colors!
    Last fall I made a batik baby quilt:

    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.
    Peace

    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.

    Love your quilts. Batiks are hard to use for a baby quilt. I know because I just finished one today. I especially like the one with the fish on it. I'll bet it was a big hit.

    these might be for me. i am hoping to be prego but things noit good. go in Thursday . TTo see.o so to taky my mind off things planning a baby quilt. the five guys quilt is like the hidden wells quilt pattern. sorry for problems with letters and words but my tablet is not the easiest to type with. i love batiks so that is why i choose them. they will last a long time and grow with the kid. my other two have quilts in batiks.

    I know the fabrics don't scream baby, but I think a good baby quilt needs to grow with the kid, that's why I always make mine extra big and something that might suit a young child too.

    What about something like this?

    Wow. I looked at the fabric and thought, "That's not baby fabric." Then I saw your batik baby quilt and had to rethink that. What a gorgeous use of batik and a really awesome baby quilt. It would look great with Sahm's fabrics.
