Going on a Safari….Baby quilt Top

So, I found this fabric when I was going through my stash and decided that it would make a cute baby quilt.  I must have thought that when I bought it, because I also have matching fabric for the back.  After I cut out all the animal squares, I turned around and sewed them back together with sashing.  My daughter thought this was totally crazy and a big waste of time.  She kept asking why I was cutting them up and I told her “So I can sew them back together”.  She just looked at me with that dumb founded look as if Mom had completely flipped out.

Even though she thinks I am crazy, it still came out cute.  It went together quickly, mostly because it was simple, I am sure.  Either way, I like it.  Not sure how I am going to quilt it, likely something simple.  It will make a great gift or go in the cedar chest for my someday, way way off grandchild.

My daughter is 13 and being an “OLD MOM”, I am always concerned that I may never meet my grandchildren.  So, I make quilts for them now, just in case. Whether I am here or not, they will have a quilt form their grandmother.  I know, in the words of my daughter, WEIRD.

 

Happy Sewing
