Aria's Baby Quilt

One of my best friends in the whole world, who I've known since my first year of high school in Japan, is having a baby next month!  I'm super excited about it, and of course, I had to make her a quilt for the little one.  Because I know that she and her husband are into nature and hiking and things like that, I thought that the Nature Walk fabric line from Cloud9 was perfect - plus, it is organic, so it is very safe for the baby!  On the back, I really wanted to piece in a couple panels from the blue Lily & Will line because my friend has always had pet rabbits.  Aria's husband also had a pet rabbit when they moved in together, so I wanted the two panels on the back to represent the two of them and how they would always be watching over their little one.  All-in-all, I think it turned out really well.  I was a little worried about my choice of a light green polka dot fabric for the binding, but I think it works. 

I apologize for the low-quality of the photos.  Once I finish a quilt, I am always so anxious to send it out to the recipient, that I never take the time to photograph it nicely.  This is something I'll have to work on ...
