Baby Menagerie Quilt Top

I posted a picture on flickr last week of the design for my new baby quilt using Quiltography...

Ideally, I would have had a block with a solid centre but there wasn't one available so I made good use of a Courthouse Steps block to get the same effect. Unfortunately, this meant that the design of the animal fabric isn't as clear I would have liked, because it is made up of 5 small pieces instead of 1 large one, but I really like the effect it had on the borders because it almost looks like it has been sewn together.

I have beavering away on the quilt top to show you and I am so pleased with how it turned out, it is a simple way to display these lovely patterns.

And it even looks remarkably like my initial design too!
