Deep Breath for Sea Baby

Sigh. I completed the baby quilt for baby 2 (as we refer to baby on the way) and submitted it to the Make Baby Stuff quilt contest. Yikes! So, if you want to, you can go here and say nice things about it.

I'm a little nervous because I've never entered a contest, really for anything before, and the competition is extremely stiff. There are some amazing quilts there. Plus, I struggled to take a good photo. Either way, I really like the quilt itself. I used freezer paper stencil to put 6 pairs of sea creatures onto the front of it. My hope was to create a kind of game of trying to find the sets, so they are scattered all over. Do kids play games with quilts, who knows? It's worth a shot.
Here is one of the crabs.
And one of the whales. All the images are from

This is the quilt back. I had a little more fun with it than usual.

that is a beautiful quilt...i love the stencils that you did. That is so brave, i am always afraid to do more than make a quilt and just labeling it scares me a little. Good luck with your contest

This is super cool. I love your ideas of having different quilts for different reasons. A birthing quilt is such a good idea. xoxox emily
