Default Little cot quilts for a baby shower

image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgLast minute rush to get these finished and off to Australia for my daughter's baby shower. I'd really like to take them there in person but have to be patient and wait till baby arrives!
The first came from an unfinished quilt I bought on Etsy. The owner had hand tied it but I really didn't like the poly wadding or the bottle green wool. I stripped it back and backed it with the same flannel I've used on an old fashioned teddy quilt which I've already had on here. The second I decided should be quite different from the other two so opted for a modern design to complement the crisp navy and white. The quilting is just regular grid. I wasn't too sure about the negative space in the middle but amn't competent enough to create a quilting masterpiece - ha ha I live in hope! The turquoise elephant was an option to fill the space but my youngest suggested I leave it blank and use the elephant for a cushion cover.

Beautiful....love the elephant quilt, it's really vibrant. I also like the zig zag stitching, for some bizarre reason I have never thought of using it in any of my quilts....Anyway, your daughter will love it, and so will the little one. Thanks for sharing and I hope you will have a reunion soon.

Great gifts. I think the elephant quilt is fantastic, I like the use of negative space, given me some ideas, thanks for sharing. Congrats on coming grand baby.
