Animal Baby Quilt

I really enjoy using this pattern and I have now made two.  Part of the enjoyment is finding the material to enhance the animal shape.  I have to put in a marmalade cat, a yellow chick and a red ladybird.  This time (The quilt on the left) the fish uses seahorse material; the teddy bear has teddy bears inside; the dog has dogs and the butterfly has – surprise – butterflies.  The pig is a heritage Gloucester old spot.  I think the grey seal is quite realistic.  The animal shapes are appliqued onto the calico squares and quilted afterwards.
