Baby Quilt goes to the Animals

This week between peeling mangoes, I was busy sewing a baby quilt using Bunny Hill Designs free pattern, My Sweet Baby.  I wanted to give the quilt an old fashioned look because I'm using 3o's fabrics, so I decided to add embroidery animal corner blocks.  I found some great animal pattern blocks in this book.I can't read Japanese so I'm guessing the title of this book is Really Cute Baby Quilts.  The great thing is you can trace a pattern to use without knowing any Japanese.  Outline embroidery like this is so easy.  It's just like coloring with crayons.
My favorite is this chipmunk. 

Here's the blocks all together waiting for their new home in the baby quilt. 
I will post a picture of the finished quilt as soon as those darn ripe mangoes quit dropping from the trees.
