You can't beat a baby quilt using these lovely animal panels. The simple black and white designs make it perfect for a boy or girl.
Batting and white minky give this quilt weight but not so much that it feels bulky. Following the seam lines to quilt in a wavy stitch makes a nice 2" grid throughout. Aurifil 50wt. worked like a charm as always for piecing & quilting .
This is my 4th Thicket quilt and the design still feels fresh and current. A previous post here has more sewing details on how to make a baby Thicket quilt.
Shown above is an 'adult' version using lots of small panels. There is a stash of fabric waiting for me to make two more blankets like this. I love these critters and so does my family & friends. For more on this quilt - the link is here.
While Thicket fabric may not be as available as it once was - the artwork of Stacie Bloomfield (aka Gingiber) can be found in fabric lines called Catnip & Savannah.
