Animal Crackers - Baby blanket

Animal Crackers Quilt
This is strip pieced using all sorts of animal fabrics and quilted in the ditch

Fleece backed with a fleece fringe
I like to do some fleece backed quilts as they do not slip off, so perfect for carriage and crib!

Gift for a friend
Panda's, owls, dogs, bunnies, fish .................. she does not what sex the baby will be ------hence animals :-))
Hope she likes it!
