    I am making this quilt for a great niece who is expecting a baby boy in June. Working by the seat of my pants and helpful suggestions from a friend. Do you have any suggestions? Haven't come up with a border idea yet. What do you think?

    I just love it! I made my niece a "farm quilt" in March and used South Seas matching fabric that made a white picket fence.

    make the border with a combination of animals motifs maybe can be quilted in. Use a green border and do big stiches that rwesembles animals and put his name in it.

    Wow, is all I can say! For the border (it's a farm isn't it") Put a split rail fence around it somehow!...or, there are some great fabrics with farm prints, etc.

    This sounds great! How about putting a tractor in the field, apples on the tree, deer in the woods? Is there a sun in the sky? (Hey not in Iowa today--got 6 inches of snow yuk!) A cute creative quilt!

    I looked again--fish in the creek, a frog on the edge, how about a turtle, too?

    Does it even need a border? I think it would just look nice with binding...maybe in dark green or brown. Show us again when you have it finished! It is really cute!

    a very good learning quilt especially if the baby will not have a chance to actually get to see these animals in person. I made one for my great nephew,and he just loves it. His mother wanted to hang it on the wall but he wouldn't hear of it.

    This is so cute. What a great job you've done on it. How about a barn cat and a border collie sheep dog, a few flowers with a couple of pretty butterflies
