Can Cactus be cute and friendly?
Modern. Southwest. Baby bedding. That is the challenge with Spoonflower and Carousel Designs this week. As I was pondering what to do, I kept thinking of the unique and interesting shapes of cactuses - they seem so representative of the southwest - and I wondered "can cactuses ever be cute and cuddly?" So I set out to make modern and appealing cactuses that you wouldn't feel bad putting a smiling baby down on for a nap. Also I love the geometric patterns of ceramic tiles and wanted to keep that bold pattern feel for visual stimulation for babies. I've included a collage of cactus and tiles in a one-yard cheater baby quilt. I used the crib image from Carousel Design's website to see how my patterns could work in a baby's world.

They can’t open their bedroom door yet either, but probably will be able to by the time they are potty trained, so they can go to the bathroom if need be. I suspect they’ll be ok to stay in their room during nap/bed time, but fool around with each other, and their toys a lot while we transition to beds. I’m sure it will be a tiring few days or weeks, but all kids seem to get the hang of it, so I guess mine will too.
