    Barnyard Dance baby quilt

    It's Done!!! The baby was born Oct 23rd, but I won't get to meet him until Thanksgiving week...but his quilt is finally done and I can't wait to give it to my niece and her new baby!

    The silly dancing animals are inspired by Sandra Boynton's children's book 'Barnyard Dance', which was one of my DS's favorites. I quilted baby Brody's name into the tractor - but it's hidden for a game of 'Where's Brody'. (I did that same thing on his brother's quilt - hid his name in the leaves of a tree.)

    I had so much fun on this quilt!! And y'all helped me w/ the words on the top/bottom/sides...I decided to stitch them, then I quilted over them w/ invisible (polyester) thread.
    Enjoy! Donna Mc

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What an adorable quilt! It's sure to be his security blanket. Great job.

    I really like the wonderful whimsy of the design of the quilt and you constructed it so perfectly and quilted it so beautifully. Yes, it will be fun to gift it. It is sure to be a treasure.

    Congratulations to you and family! The barnyard seems to be celebrating too. How cute this quilt is.
