The Polkadotamus quilt is a commission quilt for a friend of mine; she doesnâ€™t have kids of her own, but has a plethora of nieces and nephews who have babies, and we both enjoy the thrill of giving something handmade. So it works out that she gives me high level requirements (colors or themes), and I get to whip up something fun thatâ€™s going to a good home.
Anywho, the guidance this time was pastels and animals, so I pulled out my copy of Scraps Inc and some 3-1/2″ scrap squares in the right colors and went to town.
You can also see a bit of the fern quiltingÂ from the setting triangles in that shot. I think they might have been more balanced with the rest of the quilting in a slightly larger scale (and gone quicker to quilt!), but oh well. They are cute at least.
This same friend commissioned me to make another (even smaller) quilt, so once I get that one done Iâ€™ll mail both off to her.
