A Zoo Quilt.

Here we go.  This will really test out whether all the repairs and upgrades work.

If this post works I can then  see if you can comment and if I can reply.

Fingers crossed.

Several weeks ago I managed to complete this quilt top and send it to my LAQ. It came back within a fortnight and was bound and ready to take to our 2 1/2 year old grandson.

(We had a week of cloudy days so photos are a bit dull.)

The main animal fabric is Jungle Creatures.

The pattern is from a book called Precut Quilts.

The quilting pattern was a perfect choice as it is made up of zoo animals.

Here is  close up to see the creatures.

Lions, elephants and giraffes.

The backing fabric fits well with the animal theme – a herd of rhinoceros. And the binding is a soft linen grey.

The timing of the finish for the quilt was perfect. The day we delivered it was the same day his new grown up bed was being constructed.

Lots of time was spent looking for creatures in the quilt.  Lots of fun!

Cheers, Karen
