    This is my first "real" quilt. I mean that I actually pieced the top, sandwiched, basted, then machine quilted. Babies love to look at bright contrasting colors. He is a new surprise to my 45 year old friendn husband and their 9 year old quads. He as conceived while the boys were taking a nap while the family was vacationed at the beach last summer. Thus the sea animals. And I wanted to use the silky binding because they just feel so good. :)

    This is the first quilt I will be giving away. I hope it doesn't fall apart!

    You did a great job and you are so thoughtful. If you used a machine, it shouldn't fall apart.

    Reminded me of the old cruise line commercial where the little girl tells the crowded elevator that "This is my brother, but Mommy calls him her little souvenir!" Beautiful quilt, and I know that it will bring them pleasant memories!
