    Baby Safari

    Haven't been on the board in awhile, I've got a lot of catching up to do, so many pictures, so many quilts. I've had a pretty busy winter with Christmas, a job that I'm so ready to retire from and a couple of surgeres but have managed to knock out this baby quilt for a young lady at work. Her nursery theme is Safari Animals and it inspired me a bit. I had been planning a simple friendship star but I when I found the animal vignette print, it evolved from there. I added a couple of batiks and a lovely animal print that is a mix if giraffe, leopard, tiger, etc., also used for the backing. I quilted with a meander with some loops thrown in. I framed each of the animals with loops and tried to keep the loop idea going.

    Have a new grandbaby coming a couple of months, have to get to work on that quilt. This one was a good warm up for me.

    Hope you like this one.

    Very nice work! and such an interesting design too.

    May I ask if it's primarily HSTs (except for the cute fussy-cut squares)?

    That is a really beautiful baby quilt, you did a great job. I am glad you are back on the quilting board, and I hope you are well now. I have had two surgeries, one on my back, and one on my ankle. I still use a walker even after years have passed sense the surgeries. Good luck to you.
