Our New Baby's Quilt

I have not taken care of my blog lately. I do have a list of reasons" for not being around most of which are family related. There have been weddings, bon voyages, kids moving in and out, the dreaded "Super Bug", a broken foot, and kennel cough for Fritz. For now, everything seems to be at a dull roar.

I have managed to make this baby quilt for our new grandson due mid-January 2008.The entire top of the quilt is made with fabrics from my stash. The blocks of jungle animals are left over from a quilt that I had made for my oldest grandson who will be 12 in January. You see we really do dig into that stash we stuff in all the nooks and crannies.

The second picture is a close up which includes the backing. The backing is a leafy pattern. The parents are decorating the baby's room in "camo". When fabric shopping I could not find anything in the "camo" category that inspired me.

The quilt will be gifted November 18th at the shower.

I love the quilt. It didn't need the least bit of camouflage fabric! Great idea for a boy (or a girl!).
