The Quilt

Well, here it is. Finally. The quilt.

I wanted to do something different from what I've done in the past- namely, put together my own fabrics instead of relying on a a series from Moda. For the most part the colors work well together and the quilt works well with the nursery bedding. If I could, I would take one or two fabrics out, but hindsight is always 20/20. I also wanted a basic square patch with no sashing material. Fancy may come later, when I know if this baby is a girl or boy.

Can you spot the owl?

A sneak peek at the crib.

At least Sadie approves of the layout. The other two cats have claimed this quilt (and crib) as their own. They will be sadly disappointed when the baby comes along.

Side note: is it ridiculous to make a quilt for your cats out of left over material? I shall ponder this question and get back with you.

Love it!! It's such a cute theme. I can't wait to see pics of the whole nursery.

I absolutely LOVE it and have been waiting for this post. :) You did an amazing job! I love the layout and the fabrics you chose. It's simply perfect! And to answer your question, it is not at all ridiculous to create a quilt from the scraps for your cats. Go for it (but I want to see pictures of that too). :)

I love this quilt. Both of our kids got an afghan from their aunt when they were born. It became "the" blanket for them for years and years (still have pieces of it tucked away). You have such a wonderful gift!
