The Simba Quilt

This little baby quilt was made from flannel receiving blankets from the thrift store. They were all there together, matching and coordinating themselves without me having to think about it. Like when you see a skirt at the thrift store, and there is the perfect blouse there too, donated by the same person at the same time. That is thrift store shopping at its best.
This is a commissioned quilt for an upcoming baby shower. I named it Simba after the Lion King, since two of the fabrics are adorable safari animal prints. Nine months too late for Elliot, but it would have been too small for him after a few weeks anyway!
