A "me collage" style quilt for baby

Another great pattern to use up some novelty fabrics - All About Me from Atkinson Design. This might be more appropriate for an older child that has a personality to tie the fabric designs to, but I can see this working for a baby as well. Pick designs that are stereotypically boy or girl or baby or things that would mean something to the parents. Or just go completely random. There doesn't have to be a rhyme or reason for everything!

This pattern can be made up in several different sizes, including a 44"x 55" for a typical baby quilt or a 55"x 66" for a bit bigger option. (Neither of which will work with a crib quilt sized batting as they are currently packaged. Argh.)
