Kirsties Baby Quilt 2014

A friend is becoming a grandfather for the first time. Little does he know what will happen when he see that baby boy for the first time. It will be love at first sight. Here is the quilt I made to celebrate his birth. It will be the last baby quilt for a while because I want to try a few other things with my silks and and old doilies.
The blocks are a frequently used post and rail pattern alternated with the main fabric. The main print has lots of Aussie animals on it.
I quilted it very simply and softly by machine in big loops. I'm not fond of the stiffness which results from quilting closely.
Did my usual label in stem stitch.
