This gorgeous baby quilt is ideal for any baby's crib. Thirteen applique animal blocks alternate between star 4-patch blocks. This quilt pattern has three designs included in the instructions - two with applique blocks, one of which has star sashing, and the third is a plain scrappy block quilt for those who prefer patchwork instead of applique.

All three quilts are fun and easy to make.
