Walking on the Wild Side

...in the sewing room. :) This time my adventure is confined to fabric and thread. I've been thinking for some time that I would like to make a quilt to auction off at the Safari Club Banquet in February. Animal prints were a given and when my friend, Cheree, told me about an animal print fat quarter pack that was 40% off, I snapped it up. Another 40%  off sale at the little quilt shop in town, and I snared the perfect sashing fabric. I'm hoping this'll work:

                           

When I saw Jenny's tutorial for the Sashed Hexi Quilt, my mind saw animal prints so it all came together quite nicely. I made a test block just to confirm that what I saw in my head matched the final result and I was tickled with the outcome:


1 block down. 11 more to go.

It's going to be a beautiful quilt. The sashing complements all of the fabrics.

This should be a very popular quilt! I hope it raises a lot of money for the group.

Wow--I am really liking what I see! That should be a hit! And good for you in coming up with the idea with time to actually get it made. My similar light bulb moments usually produce an incredibly painful time crunch. : )

What a fun quilt. At first glance I thought it was in honor of your big trip all those wild prints!!! Sorry now I have given you the idea to make another one for yourself:)

Wow! These are the perfect prints for this design -- it's going to look fabulous!! I love all of video tutorials Missouri Quilt Co. does -- I do SOOOO much better *watching* what is being done than reading instructions. I can't wait to see your finished piece!! :)
