A few years ago I made the 'mistake' of creating the tradition of making a quilt for each of my friends who had a baby.  I like making baby quilts because they are generally quick & easy... but my friends are popping out babies left & right & it's hard to keep up!

This one I thought was cute, if not my best work.  The family has dogs, and the baby is a boy so it works.  What do you think?

the backing fabric - loved the paw prints!

It's adorable.  I love doing theme quilts like this. I do one for my mother every few years for cats, since she has gone through so many...

Thanks... but I didn't so much 'modify' the pattern as steal the idea from a book at the library.  I can't remember the name of the book, but it was all kids quilts, and this one was done in cowboy / cowgirl fabrics, with an applique border.  I liked the way it lent itself to theme fabrics.  I'll probably be using this pattern again for a pirate quilt for the next baby in line!  =)

I do like giving quilts away, but I'm so ready to get a break from the baby quilts so I can work on MINE for a while. Wink
