Every time I look at this baby quilt, it makes me think of a circus - even though there are really only a couple of animals on it that ever used to be in circuses (performing giraffes, anyone?)! But the bright colours made the concept stick, and this quilt will be for a new baby, whose (first-time) parents will soon discover that this is an accurate description of their upcoming lives!
This was one of the quick baby quilts I made, and I did actually quilt this one on the Pfaff, though I've only recently got around to completing the binding and photographing it.
I specifically chose several of my snowflake-print flannels for this quilt, because the father-to-be is a keen snowboarder, and when he stayed with us in Canberra a number of years ago, we did a few day-trips to Perisher.
I used the open feather meander again, just with a different feather tip shape. It's so quick and easy and enjoyable to quilt, and is just the right density for a snuggle quilt - though I've done it much smaller elsewhere.
I don't know if they're having a boy or girl, so this bright quilt should do for either.
