    These are pictures of the quilt that I made my mom for christmas. All the animals are machine embroidered & then I pieced the African grass lands & animal prints around it.

    Thank you. I fretted over it for several months. I fell in love with the grass fabric. It's not real big. 60 x60. Just lap size. Just wanted to find the right fabric.

    Inquiring minds want to know what kind of EM you have, what type thread did you use, how long did this take you to make?

    What a beautiful keepsake.

    All the designs are Anita Goodesigns except the girafe, elephant, zebra & panda. They are Dakota. I used Maderia thread. All are 5 x7 design size. Most of them have more than 20,000 stitches so each one takes almost 1 to 2 hours to stitch. Have a Babylock Elleago machine. I started working on it in Sept but couldn't get the African Animals CD (Anita Goodesigns) it was backordered so it threw me behind so I had to make up for lost time & really hussle to finish. One CD is called Big Cats & the other is African Animals. The Dakota designs I bought individually on one of those special days they have. The girafe did sell for $50.00 & zebra was $35.00 but got a good deal. I started on my old Babylock Ellure Plus but finished on the Elleago. Both did a wonderful job. When I hung it up to take picture the boys said mom you should hang it on the wall. Would make a nice wall hanging. Thanks for all your praise.
