A friend asked me for ideas about a baby quilt. Along the themes of aliens, Loch Ness, sasquatch that sort of thing.

I offered up a bunch of rough sketch outlines and this is the one that got settled on. The original idea is not mine. But I cannot find the pic that inspired me. Bad crafter.

This one had a moment. Where I almost took the scissors to it. After it was done.

Now I'm glad I didn't and I popped it in the mail today

That's a cool design and a great way to subliminally encourage a lifetime fascination with cryptids in the child recipient!

This is my favorite Loch Ness Monster explanation artwork, by Brian Froud (from his Goblins book):

Hahaha...awesome quilt!!! I'm so glad it survived the scissors!

PS - I also own that wonderful Froud book, Patraw. I think I looked at that page a million times as a child. Smiley
