I imagine that DH is ready for a home cooked meal now, but I told him I may have forgotten how to cook. Grin.
I always take a quilt to bind when I head that way and this one was next in line:
When Missouri Star introduced the Sashed Hexi Quilt tutorial, I knew I had to make it in animal prints. The local Safari Club has an auction during it's annual banquet in February. Each year they sponsor a couple of hunts for wounded veterans and I wanted to contribute in some way. So this quilt will either be auctioned off to raise money for one of their hunts or given to a veteran. I'm hoping it will be auctioned off and then donated back to the veteran. :)
I don't ordinarily watch much television, but the Olympics are the exception so I stitched on this binding while watching in the evenings with my mom
I chose a brown minky backing and although probably not the ideal quilt to be working on in the south in August, I think it's the perfect choice for this quilt and Jackie quilted a pantograph design called Labyrinth that has a tribal feel to it:
It's 53 x 67...a good back of the couch size:
And many thanks to my champion quilt holder!
It's hard to believe that we left Zimbabwe exactly 1 year ago. Looking at this quilt, I think I need to make another one...for us!
