This one is very loosely based on the Flexi Strip Baby Quilt tutorial that I linked to last week. I knew that I was going to use every last bit of that animal print and I didn't want to cut it into narrower strips and lose any of the critters, so I squared up the piece I had and built the rest of the quilt around it.
Looking back, I can see about a dozen different ways I could have done this and I might wish I'd chosen one of the different options, but I'm going to quilt it and bind it and give it away and not fuss over what might have been. It's cute this way. And one of the things I love about the baby quilts is that I don't have to obsess over every last decision because the quilts aren't going to live with me.
There are a lot of the solids left over and they just happen to go nicely with a backing fabric I've got in my stash, so now I know what my next baby quilt is going to be. Don't you just love watching the possibilities open up as you finish projects and figure out what's left to work with?

Link directly to your post or specific Flickr photo. Your post can be about a baby quilt that's finished, or in progress, or you can be writing about what you have planned, as long as it's about baby quilts. You're welcome to link to baby quilt posts that aren't brand new, but please don't submit the same post or picture more than once. I'd love it if you linked back to my site, either with a text link or the Let's Make Baby Quilts! button.
