Safari!

Hope you all had a great day!  Looking forward to some sunny weather hopefully this coming weekend!  Take a look at this amazing applique quilt that Helen made.  I just love the zoo animals.  With the exception of the outer border, I disconnected from Thelma and quilted this entire quilt free hand.  I wanted the sky to look like the wind was just swirling around and I didn't quilt on the faces of the animals so they would pop off the quilt.  I used 2 layers of batting:  cotton and wool to help give the quilt a firmer feel since it is going to be a wall hanging and also to help the animals pop.  Nice work Helen! I hope you like the way it turned out!
