Hi everybody!

I hope I post this one in the right folder.

My dutch cousin had her first baby in September and as soon as she told us that she were pregnant I started working on a baby-quilt. And when she told us it's going to be a girl I new the quilt had to be pink, flowery and just darn cute Cheesy

I also knitted a soft baby blanket (the quilt is not that soft, so I made this one) and sewed a simple heart out of rose-fabric.

So here is what I made: (the colours in the pictures are a bit off because of the bright sunlight)
the quilt-thingy (I hand-quilted (I guess) pale yellow hearts)


Close-ups of the animals (my favourite is the lion Smiley next time I have to remember to take more colourful fabrics. some animals are quite white)


an elephant


zebra


the baby's name


birdie Smiley and a crooked seam...




the back with the parents names: mom + dad = baby Smiley the picture isn't great. you can't see the pale yellow hearts...


heart


and the knitted blanket.


Tell me what you think about it Smiley

What an adorable baby quilt! I am also geeking out over the fact you included an embroidered snake--that is awesome. All the animals are really cute though. Great job! Smiley
