This is the gift I made for my baby cousin's Baby shower. My uncle and his fiance decided to be suprised with gender so I needed something that could work for either a girl or boy.
I found the Patterns for all the little animals on Flickr, they took about a week and a half to embroider. I primarily used bakstitch with some french knots and chain stitch.
All of the squares were muslin, I love how soft it gets when it's washed. The backing is a tan flannel that I got 60% off which was nice. When it was finished I quilted around each square then I tied out the entire quilt with some acrylic yarn.
Everyone really loved how it came out. These are some of my favorite animals.
Letme know what you think.
