ScientistGirl’s best friend from college is expecting and she is very craft worthy. MissVet is getting this baby quilt for her shower and will later get a baby sweater.
I knew this Moda Animal Crackers panel was perfect for MissVet. I tried to use just animals she sees in her rural practice, but had to add the crocodile and penguin to round out my numbers! LOL. I don’t think we naturally have crocs in Indiana, but I could be wrong? We have penguins in our zoos.
I pulled 6 fabrics from a FQ bundle to use for sashing, they match shades she is using in the decor. SG painted some canvases of sea life in these colors for the nursery.
For quilting I decided a Panto would be best, I knew I didn’t want heavy quilting, it needs to be soft and snuggly for baby, so I went with swirly loops. I think it was the perfect way to get texture without having to figure out how to quilt around the animals.
The border and backing is a Moda print that I continued into the binding.
That’s where I’m at this week, how about you? Linking with the Friday hosts in the sidebar.
Gail is having a SAHRR Parade Finale showcasing all the quilts made during our recent sew along. Be sure to check it out!
