"Ocean and Animals" from Cynthia Wahinekapu

 

I made this for my grandson who is about to be born.  His sisters ages 5 and 6 picked out the material and I put them together. It has been a fun project for us. The quilt is centered with a picture by Lassen and it is surrounded by many textures with designs of animals and well known children's characters. This is an easy machine quilt.

Your grand-daughters did a terrific job of choosing fabrics for their baby brother and your quilt is adorable.  Thanks for letting us see it.

You did a great job with all the brite colors.  I think that it's a great memory for the older grand-daughters to have.  Way to go Grandma!!!

cynthia, fun baby quilt.   i love to pick out fabric with kids.  once i took my three nephews, ages  11, 12, and  13 to a quilt store to pick out fabric.  once they got over the embarrassment of being in a quilt store with their ,"old aunt", we all had a ball.   they keep bringing them back for repairs, but they don't want new ones.    when two of the boys  had to evacuate their house on short notice  due to wildfires.  the only thing they took were their quilts    gini

Love the quilt!   I would have never thought to put "ocean" theme and "monkeys" together but it all works!  I've learned something new. . .I need to step out of the box. . .do you think your grandaughters will go fabric shopping with me??

What a precious quilt.  I am sure big sisters are really proud that you used material that "they" picked out.  It is really neat!!  Thanks for sharing.

Oh I bet you had so much fun - with the girls picking the fabrics and putting all the love I know you put into this wonderful gift that you made for this baby boy.  Your quilt is beautiful and will be cherished for years to come.  Wonderful!
