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.

Beautiful quilt. Just think of all the use she will get from it, for many many years.

It's beautiful. It's been made with love and that's all that matters.

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 :)
