Octopus's Garden Baby Quilt

My niece has received the baby quilt I made for her new son Ronin, so I'm comfortable about posting photos now. Yippee!

Here it is, tada. Hand appliqued, hand embroidered, machine quilted.

Boat detail. I added a couple of kitties because my niece loves kitties.

Jellyfish detail. I stamped words for almost everything, with Carol's wonderful letters.
The octopus is a major player. You can't see it very well here, but he is smiling.

Here's the other kitty, exploring in his submarine.

I have taken more detail photos that I will share on another day.

Wow, this is amazing. I would love to make something like this but i am relatively new to quilting and it looks quite complicated! Amazing though x
