My cousin just recently had another boy (i hoped to make a quilt for a girl this time  Roll Eyes ) and I wanted to get  a bit away from the traditional pale blue.  I started by scoring the adorable flannel monkey background fabric and I was definitely in love with it! I was secretly hoping to have some of it left over for myself...

The whole thing... it's a bit big for a baby quilt... he'll grow into it  Roll Eyes


The animal batik was rather awesome, so each big block was fussy cut so an animal was in the middle, and later I hand quilted around each of the animals with a variegated thread that's a bit hard to see in the picture. The rest of the quilting is just stitch in the ditch except for some squiggly lines


And last the backing.... because it's awesome

Love it! I love the fabrics you found and the color combo. I also get tired of making baby quilts in the "traditional" colors so I usually go for bright colors.
