Baby Quilt for Collin Bryon Van Fleet

This quilt is for the soon-to-be-born son of my niece, Meghan, and her husband, Tyler.

 I found most of the fabrics at The Stitchin' Post. As seems to be the case with me, I picked up a few fabrics that just didn't fit into the quilt once I got to laying it out. Oh well, more for the stash!

I finished the quilt August 12. The design was inspired by "Hip to be Square"by Busy Bee Quilt Designs.

40" x 52"


 
 The back is Alexander Henry's "Pool Monkey's Business - 2-D Zoo Cotton Flannel".  I saw this at Cool Cottons before I knew what I was going to make with it. I just loved the colors and the animals so I had to have it. Luckily Meghan announced she was having a baby and that was that.

Here are a few close-ups of some of the "things"
                                                                        











And I couldn't resist making some onesies to match!
