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.

Wow, I love it, for baby, toddler, little girl - it's perfect and so beautifully done.

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 :)

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

Very nice, I am sure it will be treasured for years! I love the bold colors, stimulating for baby, too. Great job! :)

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.

thequiltmama 04-26-2011 03:52 AM

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

I always go for pastels, but I love this, and so will baby

sueisallaboutquilts 04-26-2011 04:31 AM

I think it's perfect for a baby!!!!!!!!!! You did a wonderful job and my guess is the baby will enjoy it more than pastels.

I was all about the bright/darker colors for my daughters. They had very little pastel colors when they were babies. So far they seem just fine ;) LOL! I think it is a beautiful quilt, perfect for a new baby, and I am sure your granddaughter will LOVE it!!

Fabulous quilt. Babies love bright colors so it should fit right in. It will be loved for a long, long time. Great job and I love the butterflies.

pollyjvan9 04-26-2011 06:13 AM

I never make baby quilts in "traditional" colors, so of course I love yours! Babies love bright bold colors and I am predicting this will be a favorite for many years!

slstitcher 04-26-2011 06:19 AM

So pretty, this will be a keepsake for Grace and be special because Grandma made it for her.

buddy'smom 04-26-2011 06:36 AM

Beautiful, I just love the color's and butterflys..

TerryQuilter 04-26-2011 06:45 AM

Now it's not just a baby quilt, it can be a toddler quilt, a tween quilt, etc. It's quite lovely. I don't use just pastels when I make my grandchildren baby quilts and they love them.
