Animal Crackers

My daughter mentioned the other day that one of her friends was pregnant and due in about 3 months.  She and her husband decided against finding out whether the baby was a boy or girl – they will know on his/her birthday!  So the nursery is gender-neutral, done in soft yellows and grays.  Funny where inspiration comes from, isn’t it?  I remembered a piece of fabric I had – a yellow and gray plaid – that was an impulse buy and has remained in my “stash” for quite a while.  I didn’t have other fabrics that would work well with it, in a pieced quilt, but I did have a yard or so of a soft pastel yellow solid.  SO…

This is a “whole-cloth” baby quilt.  I used an edge-to-edge quilting design called Animal Crackers, by Patricia  Ritter.  This was so much fun to quilt on the long-arm!  And, it will be a lovely baby gift that Brittany can give her friend!
