Tallen's Quilt

A little over a year ago, I made this quilt for a newly-arrived friend's newborn daughter. Well, last spring, she and her husband found out a surprise was on its way - another baby! When I told her that I was going to make her a quilt for this baby, she immediately put in a request for this quilt. Since figuring out patterns and fabric is a huge chunk of the work for me when making baby quilts, she made my life a little easier. So, here's the new quilt!I love the colors in this quilt - the blues and greens are a little funky.I also love that with all the geometric shapes, colors, and animals, this is definitely a boy's quilt.In fact, I love it so much that when I cut out the fabric for this quilt, I went ahead and cut enough to make another one for our new little one!Thanks for visiting, and enjoy looking at all the other lovely quilts at the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Love it. I have that little animal print in the peachy colors and I'm looking forward to using it soon. I like the way you have treated it in your quilt. Nice job. Thanks for sharing it.

Perfect quilt for a little baby boy! Love the geometric shapes and the animals, and you can never go wrong with blue and green, IMO.

This really turned out great! Blue/Green is one of my favorite color combinations. It's so sweet that your friend's babies are so close in age. Our children are somewhat close, and they're all best friends!
