    Beautiful quilt and I love the colors. Why not use bright ( and i bit darker) fabrics for babies? I think it's great

    I think it's beautiful. And I'm sure your new granddaughter will love it for years to come.

    It is just beautiful! I love butterflies, so maybe that has something to do with me loving it.
    Just a quick word of warning - my newphew and wife were expecting their first and were told the Dr. that it was a girl. She got tons of pink things, and being the planner she is, washed them all ahead of time. Guess what - that little "girl's name is Owen. Yup, she was a boy. So, you just might want to pick up a couple of boy things just in case. ;-)

    Just like raedar said, babies love bold colors. I work at a children's hospital and I can tell you that the donated quilts that we give the kids from guilds are very much noticed more when bright (like a fire engine).

But my daughter wanted it because her crib set was a butterfly motif, so I just made her what she wanted. What's everyone's opinion? Good for an infant or not? I'm curious what people think!
    It is so very pretty and I love the fact that you have her name appliqued on it too. What a treasure and a keepsake for her to have. :)

    Beautiful. What I like best is she can keep on using it for quite some time. That's a plus. Love batiks.

    Infants love colors, they are fascinated by colors. Baby colors are not very inspiring nor do they grab the attention of babies, or some adults too. I say "let them eat color".
