Sweet little Brooks is the second child for our friends. I made his old brother, Brecken, an Eye-Spy quilt a few years back.

The pattern is called Zoo Sunsets, and was designed by my Mom. Her design calls for the animals to be solid black, and placed on top of sunset prints. I've been more interested in modern quilts lately, so I mixed it up a little, making the animals out of bright prints and putting them on a white background.
I also modified her quilt by shrinking it to be crib-sized.
She usually traces and cuts the shapes by hand, but I wanted to try using a Silhouette. I transferred her images to the Silhouette Studio software, and had my Silhouette Cameo cut them out for me. To be perfectly honest, it didn't do a good job, and it was more of a pain to transfer the images, clean them up, and deal with the sub-par cutting job than it would have been to just use my Mom's tried and true method.
But anyways! After that I had my animals, and was able to put the quilt together!
I found the perfect backing at a local Modern Quilt Shop!
Aren't the animals cute?!
I love all the fun colors and animals, and I hope Brooks does too :)
