I wanted to share this D9P that I used a panel of squares as part of the fabrics. I love how it came out. The only thing that I didn't like was they were off a bit and therefore are slightly off from each other around the edges. But the quilt is so busy, I don't think it will be noticeable. I also used a matching border print and mitered the borders. I had an issue with that, here's the post on the solution.
I believe the fabric panel and border were called Safari Cats, but forget the maker. I don't think I have any selvedges left to look at. Sorry.
It's a gift, but not for Christmas (good thing, it will never get done in time). It's for my DIL's parents, who have the most beautiful safari animal knick knacks in their home.
Quilting suggestions? I'll be quilting it myself. Not too complicated FMQ or decorative stitching is what I'm thinking, but not sure of a pattern.
This is the panel I used for the squares
