This is the first quilt I have finished since my Mom passed away in March. I have done a few small ones but not a big one. I just needed time to greave. My Mom would have said get up and get moving now. So I did. A Quilt Guild friend brought me this quilt that she made for her daughter. It is a Tumbling block design. Her daughter wanted Jungle design on the quilt. So a bought some great Safari designs that make a great long run. 5 designs all together. So I put the long one that puts all of them together on the big border, a great tiger cat design in the second one and then I drew in lion paws for the small border. Then there are 7 designs done in the big part of the quilt with a small jungle ground cover that I drew in. I also added a Lion, Tiger, Leopard, Elephant and Giraffe heads in the corners. I think it turned out great and I believe my Mom had a hand in it. I am so glad my Mom got the cross quilt I made her before she passed away. Dad even had it at the funeral near her. He is keeping it for him now. Anyway, I know many of you have experienced the loss of a loved one. So thank you all for looking at Marilyn's quilt. She will see her daughter next week while she is on a bus trip. Nothing better than to see their reaction. Thanks again.
I tried to get some pics of the designs but some are a little blurry. Sorry, I'm not to good with the camera sometimes.
