African Safari Baby Quilt - Project Quilting

"African Safari" Baby Quilt, 29 x 33.5", made for Project Quilting, Season 7, Challenge 4: All About That Thread, Feb. 2016 in Yellow Springs, Ohio

Challenge recap for  "I Need a Vacation":
 
Vacation is the inspiration for this challenge. Use the way vacation makes you feel or the places you'd go or the transportation to get there. Anything vacation related that inspires you.


For my project, we're going on an African Safari. I actually have a small box of fabrics with safari animals printed on them. They are mostly small pieces, not a lot of yardage which is why it's a small box. There were 30 of these small animal prints that measured about 3" x 3". They have little printed quilt patterns on them.

I pieced them with a tan fabric with oval spots on it so that each animal box is separated by sashing. And I added a brown border then machine quilted wavy lines in the sashing.


The backing fabric is one print that has small safari animals floating on a brown background and larger ones in a row across the bottom.
