Shark Baby Quilt

My dear friend Erin is expecting her first baby. I asked her if she wanted a baby quilt to hang on the wall or one to use, and she said she wanted one to use, but that she had one request. It had to have sharks on it. Apparently her husband has a thing for the movie "Jaws."

They didn't know the sex of the baby at the time and were planning a yellow and green nursery, although she said she didn't care if the quilt matched the nursery.

Up until this point I hadn't seen any fabric with sharks, but I did an internet search and found lots of fabric with sharks on it. Including the one that I ended up using.

Sharks: check. Green and Yellow: check. Cute enough for a baby quilt: check.

Plus the added bonus: text. As a graphic designer, I've always loved text, so once I saw this fabric, I knew that was what I was going to use.

So here's hoping that Erin & Ben have a beautiful, healthy baby, just wait a few years before you let the baby watch "Jaws."

Never thought I'd see cute shark fabric, but you found it! And I love that it also includes sea slugs. Let's hear it for not just decorating a kid's room with the same old stereotypical themes.
