    A really different "Baby Quilt"

    Son's friends asked me to make the crib quilt for their baby boy, due after the new year. Mommy to be bought green skull fabric and green minky for the backing. Took me a while to figure out what to do with it, but here it is. Kept it simple so her fabric is the main part of the quilt, 9 patch, 40 X 60". White centers of 9 patches glow in the dark, green splotches. I enjoyed making it once I decided what to make and how to quilt it. I never used minky before and love how the quilting shows on the back. They loved it, which I enjoyed the most ! Thanks for looking

    I'm so oldfashioned; I would never put skulls with a baby. That's why there something for everyone.

    I just don't know what to say. Your quilting is lovely, you did a wonderful job on making a quilt that pleases the parents, but really? Skulls for a baby quilt? I hope this isn't a new fad.

    I agree! Variety is the spice of life.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Great quilting, skulls don't appeal to me and not for a baby. There are so many cute fabrics out there. Different strokes for different folks, or something like that.

    Not my choice of fabric but it looks like you gave them what they wanted. Nice work.

    You did a great job. I'm not sure about the skull motif, a little wild for me.

    You did a great job. I really like the quilting on the back. No skulls for me though.

    You're right about that. I don't "get" the skull theme with a darling new baby. But, whatever floats your boat....

    The quilt is beautiful.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I admire you for being able to do that quilt. I don't leave fabric choices up to the parents. I pull from my stash to make the baby quilt as I have to be able to like what I'm making. But you did a beautiful job with the project and the skull fabric doesn't 'jump out' at you.
