Baby Quilt

The friend that I talk all the time about, Lacey, has commissioned me to make several baby afghans for people she knows. The current one I'm working on is quite a bit different from all the others I've ever done. The expectant mother is decorating the baby's room in this bedding set from Pottery Barn:

We decided to make a "granny square" type afghan with owls in amongst the squares. I had to come up with the pattern myself as most of the owl patterns out there are quite creepy. I am using the blue, pink, yellow, tan, and green colors in the bedding. The owls will be on the green squares and the other colors will be a solid square with a pretty texture. Anyway here are the colors and an upclose shot of the owl, followed by the overall pattern of the afghan. I think I am also going to add some sort of lacey border around the entire afghan, probably in chocolate brown.
