    African Safari Quilt...

    I was asked to make this for a friend. It's got double the batting as she wanted it doubly warm. I think she's going to like it. Sure hope so! I'm trying to come up with some way to free motion something really easy in the sashing and borders that has something to do with Africa. I found some symbols today with their meanings that are neat, but I still need to do the border. All the animal blocks have been detailed and the frames have SID around them to make them stand out. The elephants even had their trunk wrinkles detailed! LOL!! It looks almost as good as the parrot quilt I recently finished.

    Ok, that didn't work so I'll add it here. I plan to bind it with black like the thin inner frame.
