JD’s Silly Safari Quilt: Completed!


The quilt is completed! I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I used the Silly Safari quilt pattern from Debbie Mumm’s Cuddle Quilts book. This is the third quilt I’ve made from this book, they’re all so beautiful. I spent a long, long time agonizing over the fabric choices for this quilt. I LOVED the fabrics used in the sample, but as much as I scoured the internet and local quilting stores, I couldn’t find them. I’m happy with the fabrics I settled on though, and I love the backing fabric. I’m not sure what it’s called though. It was nice to not have to piece the back for once!

I used scraps of fleece fabrics for the manes of the lion and zebra. French knots served as eyes and nostrils on the animals. And as for the quilting, I did mostly straight line quilting and a diamond pattern for the border.

Check out closeups of each of the animal blocks in the gallery.
