I have been slowly picking away at a Miyazaki themed nursery for my soon-to-arrive bundle of joy. This is the quilt I just finished! Hooray!

I took the time to outline every few yellow triangles, to quilt the whole thing together. The green fabric is flannelette, and the other side is part an crib sheet my older children used. The brown is a lovely velveteen (I think? It didn't actually say, as I purchased it from a remnants bin) and the white of the eyes is felt.

I'm not super experienced with quilting, but I'm quite happy with how this turned out!

How fun. A Miyazaki themed nursery sounds fun, and very different from most other nurseries.

A darling and creatively designed quilt for your little one!  S/he will love snuggling with this.

Thank yous! My son came 6 weeks early, mere days after I had finished this Cheesy he's expected to come home tomorrow, much to my relief.
