A New Baby Quilt!

This morning, Miss Emma Lynn was born into my niece's family.
Of course she needs a quilt!
 
 
Her mommy requested light yellow, light purple,
and light grey for nursery colors.
 
The theme is Giraffes,
 
Elephants,
 
and Birds!
 
 
Here is the completed quilt!
 

This was a very fun quilt to make, from choosing fabrics (purple is not an easy color to find this year) to designing the pattern! Husband drew the animals for me, and Daughter was the design consultant (she has a really good eye).

I machine quilted this one, my first time trying a free motion design! I used minky on the back with no batting. It is a cute and cuddly quilt for Emma!

This is so cute! And I'm impressed that you did FMQ for the first time on minky!
