Baby Zoo

At last the first of a series of four wall hangings is finished! I am the frog (it appears on all four quilts) spying on the baby lion, as I wish I could spy on my little grandson who is about 6 and a half months old. He lives far away from me, but his pictures are everywhere I am...
Speaking of babies, my sister sent a set of four of these cute babies when my youngest son was born.
I have not been able to part with them!
I am embroidering the second wall hanging and hope to have it finished by next week. This project includes machine applique, hand embroidery, pencil coloring, and free motion quilting. The downloadable pattern will be available soon through my Etsy store, as some of you who saw it in progress have already asked for it.

Free motion quilting was fun and added to the scene. I used muslin as background to allow for coloring. It is cool to design for babies... and each wall hanging features a different baby animal, so stay tuned!

Happy Tuesday,
