I realized that I never shared this baby quilt which I made over a year ago - before she was born for a baby who is now walking! I used Elizabeth Hartman's Mod Mosaic design although I think I pieced it somewhat differently than in her original floor pillow tutorial - I pieced small sections together randomly and then laid it out rather than laying out all the pieces first.
I mostly used the green/yellow/orange/pink colorway of Thomas Knauer's Savanna Bop fabric line, with coordinating fabrics from my stash, since the parents had shared a similar color scheme fabric with giraffes that they were using for curtains. I quilted it with looping free motion meander design. I didn't want to put a border on the quilt but I also wanted to echo the white strips in the quilt, so I used a flanged binding to have a border of white next to the green binding.
It seems like our friends are having another baby boom this spring so I am hoping to make a number more baby gifts for all these new cuties soon!
