    Unusual Baby Quilt

    I made this quilt for a friend of mine who is a veterinarian. She doesn't know what sex her baby is and doesn't want to know. So color choices were difficult. I decided to do something different. The embroidery designs are BABY FARM ANIMALS by Anita Goodesign. I'm basically a beginner at this so it's not professional by any stretch. It was fun though !

    Great job. Perfect for any baby.

    Cute!! I kind of miss the challenge of making quilts when you don't know the sex of the baby. Your's is great.

    I think it's too cute! Bright colors for baby and a chance to learn the names of the animals. There's enough going on to keep baby interested, but not so much they're over-stimulated. I think you did a great job!

    That's so sweet. I love the colors and the fact that she doesn't want to know what sex her baby will be.
