Strictly speaking, these are not my customers. My lovely mother does a lot of custom quilting for other people and every now and again she quilts something so lovely I have to show it off here. To be honest, most of the quilts she does are lovely, but we often forget to photograph them.
We didn’t forget to photograph this little beauty though.
I don’t know the designer’s name, nor the name of the pattern. Sorry about that.
If I understand correctly, this is one of the first quilts this customer has made. I think she’s done a sterling job.
I am particularly impressed with her choice of colours. I think she’s been very smart at picking almost solids for the body of the animals, with the accent coming from the details. That way it doesn’t get too overpowering. And from a girl who’s made her share of overpowering quilts, this is really important. The less is more rule really applies to quilting, I’ve found.
There is definitely one of these sort of quilts in my future.
It’s so convenient that I have a whole bin of bright fabrics, just waiting for a use.
Could you not just eat this little old lion up?
Mr Giraffe is very sweet too.
Who said rhinos were dangerous?
I love this little zebra to bits. I love them all to bits.
Somehow in taking my photos I missed the elephant.
I think my mother has done an excellent job in the quilting. After I saw how lovely she had done this one, I let her do my monster quilt. I was going to quilt that one myself but I realised I’d never in a thousand years do as good a job as she did, so it’s quilted, bound and labelled. All I have to do is show it to you.
Hope you loved this little quilt as much as me!
