Animals on the Savannah

It was a delightful day
when I could finally
introduce my 5 month old grandson,
to his quilt.
You can see he's thrilled.
Well, as much as a 5 month old can be.

It was a kit that I had bought
from Fat Quarter Shop.

After some initial issues, 
it went together quickly.
 Check here for the back story if you'd like.

Then it was off to my quilter,
Debi, who did some marvelous custom quilting.

The background around each of the animals is 
a solid.  Look at the quilting she did.

It makes each of the figures pop.

I'm usually not into heavy machine quilting,
but for some reason this just seemed to fit.

I love the pattern variations down the center.
It adds lots of texture to compliment the prints
and the animals.
 Debi did a wonderful job.

The backing was made up 
of all the leftover pieces

 and will be as much fun to look at 
as the front.

I'm thinking this quilt will stay
at Nana's house for awhile.
 It will be a fun place to play
especially with Running Man.
Until Next Time-


  1. Weston's quilt is just as cute as it can be, and so is he! Isn't it amazing how some closely placed machine quilting can still leave a quilt soft and cuddly, with lots of interest.

  2. The quilt turned out beautiful. I love the machine quilting. Weston is a doll. Great picture of him and the running man. Hugs
