I made this for my friend's new baby boy...Dino! His nursery is black, white and red. I found the cartoon-y panel print and then selected the other fabrics accordingly. I love, love, love dots and checks, so Dino got the full range of spotty red and a b&w gingham! The little heart print binding was a last minute addition (which I think is my new favorite baby-quilt-detail). Its machine quilted with X's through the blocks and I outlined each cartoon character too. Lastly, I hand-quilted his name in the little red strip along the bottom border. Welcome to the world, little man!

I love the little animals!  Perfect combo of modern and retro and sweet for a baby.

This is adorable.  You've given me an idea for how to use a huge print I got at Ikea.  I love the black and white checks!

I bought the fabric in New York...at a place called Elegant Fabrics on 40th St between 7th and 8th Aves.

I too have used this fabric for a quilt for my nephew. It's Michael Miller's First Sight! Love it!
