Im hoping that it is fairly baby proof, this is the first baby in my group of friends so i guess if any thing falls apart i'll fix it for the next one.

That is gorgeous. I wish I was your friend and having another baby. ERGH, Record screeching to a stop with my 4 yo, 3 yo, and 2 yo running around in the background yelling, pulling hair, throwing sippy cups at each other and me tripping over legos to get to them, DID I JUST SAY HAVE ANOTHER BABY? I love your quilt. It's so not your average run of the mill baby quilt. You did a fantastic job. It looks super hard and like you put a ton of time and effort into it. I sure hope she loves it.

It is a great blanket! The animals are lovely and have personality.It is sure to be loved for years to come. (By the way - babyproof: without any thing a baby could rip of and swallow, like buttons etc. Lips sealed)

The promise of a quilt like this would probably make my husband's next "Let's have a third child!" campaign a success.  Luckily no one here knows my husband, nor is anyone promising me such a quilt...

I digress.

It's beautiful and so fun!  Your friend is lucky to know you.

thanx to those that left a little note. At midnight after four weeks i was almost at the point where i couldn't look at it any more. At the baby shower it made my girlfriend well up with tears - of joy, of joy. So all the time was worth it in the end Smiley

ah how cute! I spy tare panda! I like how it looks like real patch work where fabric overlaps and can be crooked (in the artistic sense) but the blanket itself is straight. It looks like it was made with real love. Glad someone other than myself can find inspiration by my quilt. Grin

I searched on Google to inspire me with simple animal shapes and made them my own. the panda came from a piece of fabric my mum had.
