    Cool Is this a Psychedelic Baby Quilt?

    This is a baby quilt for my oldest daughter's new baby girl to be born in Sept. The pattern is a slight variance of the getaway small quilt from the book another Bite of Schnibbles by Carrie Nelson. My middle daughter helped me make it and picked the pattern when we were at the Quilt Show Road to California last January. The froggy fabric used for backing was bought of this board. Hobbs 80/20 cotton batting was used for the batting. My husband designed and drew the quilt lines on and I quilted it on my Janome 6500. My daughter and husband had a baby shower given for them and we pressented the quilt. They loved it. Some of the other guest did think it was phsycodelic. What do you think?

    Great quilt. Maybe they thought it was psychedelic because of the swirls quilted in the red.

    No, they said because of the colors. Hmmm maybe the swirls in the red do add that touch also.

    It's all in the eye of the beholder. Psychodelic? Maybe..... I think its a fabulous baby quilt myself. Big bright shapes to keep little eyes fascinated is the trick to a lovey that just won't quit. Good for you ! and the lucky baby.
