At the time I started the quilt, the potential nursery theme was coral and blue with woodland animals. It took me nearly six hours to pick out the fabric, and who knows how many hours to sew it, but I did it. And I love how it turned out.
I hope the colors match the nursery, which I haven't seen yet. I wanted it to be feminine, but not so much that dad would scoff at using it. I think the deer add a nice touch; I'll say it's in honor of the first deer he got this winter with his bow! And hopefully this baby girl gets some use out of it - whether it be a floor mat or a lap blanket . . . or a giant burp cloth!
Can't wait to meet you little Adley Rae!
