What are you most proud of? I finished it in 13 days but Liam is now 6 months old. All the little stitches by hand that add the puckers to the animal's faces.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! I just followed the lines on the faces but you could quilt it any number of ways. The size was small enough I quilted it in a 14" hoop so it was portable--waiting in doctor's offices, watching ball games, it went everywhere.

How adorable! And such a special gift. I'm sure it will be treasured for years to come. I can see this becoming Liam's security blanky :D

When my husband presented this to the mom she said she'd get some glass and hang it on the wall. Gasp! I told her, "Oh, it was meant to be hugged and cuddled in, and dragged around, and slobbered on and loved by a little boy." Maybe I'll get another panel for her to hang as a picture?
