    Wow! I love it. How about a compromise - wall hanging in child's room until they are old enough to use and take care of it.

    IMHO, if it's made of flannel I would give it to a baby. If it's made of polished cotton, I would hang it in my diningroom.
    You've created a beautiful, elegant quilt. Way to go!

    What a beautiful quilt! Probably not good for a baby, but would make a lovely wallhanging in baby's or young person's room/area.

    I love this quilt! The fabric is wonderful and I truly love what you did with the elephants; facing each other. This is suitable for a child, or wall hanging or whatever the lucky recipient decides to do with it!

    This quilt is sooooooo awesomeeeeee. Add a few borders and it will make a lovely throw for some lucky person or it will be an awesome wall hanging or baby blanket.

    It doesn't really look like a traditional baby quilt, but so many new mothers today are going with non-traditional themes. That being said, I love this quilt! I collect elephants and I love the texture, colors, and soothing feelings this evokes. Great job!

    Very cool!. Stunning fabrics....brilliant elephants - what a great design. Sure it would make a great wallhanging...but I'm all for quilts to wrap people in. The minkee would make it stunning and cuddly. Look forward to seeing the end result...and your next masterpiece.

    Looks like a quilt to me! I bet it could still be wall hanging piece in 20 years if needed or wanted!

    I vote for wall hanging. I have just the place! It is terrific.

    What do you mean by fussy? that word means ribbons and lace or ruffels for a girl. You did a great job.I like your elephants,think they are cute.

    Why not a wallhanging in a baby's room? It is beautiful and would be more likely to stay that way and be enjoyed for years (good at all ages) rather than being spit up, etc! on and dragged around the floor.

    I think it would be a good toddler (1-2 years old) quilt...baby quilts get washed too often.

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
