Turn a Christmas pattern into a baby quilt

There are times when you have to do the whole imagination thing to see a baby quilt pattern in another pattern. This one is a perfect case in point. It's meant to be a Christmas quilt with the pretty little ornaments on the hooks. But, when I first saw it, I immediately realized you could just leave off the hooks and do a second set of balls in their place. And you'd have a perfect bouncy ball baby quilt. In fact, you could alternate the balls on each row so it really did look like the ball was bouncing. Tres cute!

(Of course, since it is a Christmas pattern, it's on clearance for just $3.19 and not likely to be around much longer.)
