A very, very long time ago (over 5 years ago if memory serves) I started stitching Ellen Mauer-Stroh's Animal Babies. The original intention was to make a baby quilt for my nephew, who at the time, was yet to be born. That same nephew is now five years old. The next plan was it would go to his little brother. His little brother is now 2.5 yrs old. Needless to say, I plugged away at the designs, but I never did finish enough to make into a quilt, even after I got pregnant, it did not encourage me to finish it any faster.
I can also date myself by saying that these same Animal Babies use to be on EMS's site for free when I started them, so I was lucky enough to collect a fair number of them before she ran into issues with others downloading them and selling them on ebay. It was at the time that she removed the patterns and put them for sale at PatternsOnline.com.
Anywho, all that to say, I finally started working on them again (my daughter is almost 9 months old...maybe for the second baby it will be done? ) and this afternoon I finished the dragonfly one;
Here are the other ones I have completed in the series - Frog, Skunk, Ladybug, Mouse, Dalmation and Bunny;
