    My Daughter is having a girl in May and she picked out this pattern from e-central.com. While I like the quilt, I really thought it just wasn't all that suitable for an infant because the batiks are a little dark. I think she'll probably get more use out of it when Gracie get's older. 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!

    Butterfly quilt for baby Gracie!

    It's beautiful, and who says you have to make things in 'baby' colours. I dressed my two girls in navy, dark red, and all sorts of darker colours very early on. My mum didn't like it, but they both had lots of very dark hair and I thought the darker colours suited them.

    Infants like bolder colors, they are able to see them better.I think it is perfect! It will get more use than the traditional infant quilt :)

    That is just lovely!! Gorgeous work. Pastels are what adults prefer, babies love bright intense colors and lots of contrast, this quilt will be well loved :D

    It is absolutely gorgeous...you did a wonderful job. Perfect for baby - they see bright colors. Their world shouldn't be pale pink or blue.

    I think it is perfect. Lots of color and eye catching. And she can hang it on the wall if she wants to. :)
