Teddy Bears Picnic Quilt

When my children were little, "The Teddy Bears' Picnic" was one of their favorite records to check out from the library - yes, a RECORD. 
Years later, one of my children gave me this darling pop-up book illustrated by Fran Thatcher:
Are you noticing a theme here?
Every time I looked at the fabric I had with teddy bears holding their little nets attempting to catch butterflies, the song would start to go off in my you know this song?  It's delightful...just listen and smile. 
Anyway, this song was my inspiration for this quilt.
This playful fabric was inherited. To see a close-up of this 1960's fabric go this link.

The quilt is backed in brown minky - a perfectly warm fabric for a winter baby.
My sixth grandchild is due in December and this quilt is for that wee one. 
Yea, for more grandchildren!
