Default waiting for first granddaughter...

I have finished a quilt for our first granddaughter (and second grandchild) who is due to arrive at any time. The parents are decorating with purple and pink dinosaurs (!). I couldn't find any dino fabric that I liked in those colors, so this is what I came up with. It's far from perfect, but I'm fine with that. I named it Tummy Time Quilt, something we didn't have to do when my kids were babies.

I made a baby doll quilt with some of the leftover scraps. (I bought the baby doll.)

Really cute! I love the flowers! I also made a "tummy time" quilt and matching doll quilt for my first gd and she loves the doll quilt! I think she likes the size.

Thank you for all the nice comments. I hope the parents like it and actually USE it.

I looked up the purple dot fabric (no name on the selvages), and it is from the Jungle Baby line by Studio E. I bought it on sale at a local quilt shop a few months but perhaps you can find it online.

The quilt is so pretty. I also like the flowers you added. The doll quilt with the little doll is so pretty as a total special package for the new little girl. I am sure the parents will use the beautiful quilt.
