I bought this Robert Kaufman Urban Zoologie jelly roll from Craftsy to make a baby quilt for my niece's baby. I simply fell in love with it. I added a red polka dot as the main fabric and went to town.

I kept it simple, creating 12 inch/3 strip blocks with the birds as the center block. The fabrics were so busy, I didn't want to make them any smaller or lose the wonderful birds. I did a simple "stitch in the ditch" around each square, then hand tied the center of each square with red floss. It's so warm and cozy I don't want to send it off.

I made some bibs and a crinkly block with the bits left over.

I has taken me 3 months, due to other fun things to do like vacation and work and the outdoors. But here is the finished product.

Baby Wesley received his blankie and after mom washed it for him, he talked his daddy into a nap! He's just 2 months old and it's cold out there, so a warm cozy blanket is very welcome. I also sent bibs and a crinkle toy. Life is good when you are young.
