I've been working on a baby quilt for months. I think I chose the most time consuming idea possible :). Finally, nearly every animal is finished - just some details of several have to be done. I'm glad the animals are interspersed with plain blocks. They are much quicker! The idea is that the quilt represents South Africa and Australia, like our family! There is a koala, lion, emu, hippo, leopard, kangaroo (and joey), etc. all mixed up together! We hope that our child will identify with and pray for both the country where he/she was conceived (South Africa) and the country where he/she will be born - Australia! This is by no means the final block arrangement, just one layout idea. The only definite colour patterning is the emerald green.
Oh, and our bed is not even properly made in this picture - just so my online friends realise I'm not a perfect housekeeper :).
