What a wonderful pattern! Great for a baby or small child quilt. Thanks for the very clear instructions. Have added them to my favorites folder.

I have a question. Do the quilts that are finished in 3D catch on things?

Good question.

Would probably depend on how it was used. Those I've seen made like this, and other 3-D quilts with animals on them, etc, were definitely used and displayed, but not really dragged around or left for bigger kids to jump on or animals to chew. But for what I'd call probably normal baby use, even as nap quilts and play mats, they've performed great.

For the most part, these kinds of fancy quilts, even though they are not the most difficult to make, are still conversation pieces, and are used on baby beds; as floor play quilts for the baby; as buggy covers on special dress-up trips like church or visiting; or hung over a rocking chair; or even hung on the wall.

Definitely gift quality.

p.s. They go through the laundry great, too.
