I know about 8 pregnant people right now and am on mat leave myself with a 5 month old.  Surprisingly, I was able  to complete a quilt.  Its a chunky modern quilt and I love modern but always feel guilty if its not intricate.  its like I'm cheating. 

Anyway, I had this panel of 8 animals and it was too much for one quilt.  I had a hard time coming up with a pattern for a rectangular quilt (my brain always seems to turn out square baby quilts o_O).  Finally, MareMare provided the answer

I have the second quilt to finish.  Up to the top and the back being done, they were done in tandem.  But the first shower was coming up so I had to get one done.  Now I need to muster the patience for the second (I'm not one for repeating the same work twice).

The second is the same pattern with different animals. Wish I did more quilting but until plan that better, this is all she gets!

Thoughts?

I think this is colorful and very nice. The thumbnail caught my attention right off the bat.
