Safari Life Quilt

Quilting:


I recently ordered a bundle of the Happy Drawing fabrics by Ed Emberley for Cloud 9 fabrics. I wanted to make Thom a new quilt for his bed since I realised all his quilts where still cot size.

I wanted to choose a pattern that didn't cut into the great fabrics and found the really simple 'turning twenty' pattern. 


It's a really simple pattern that starts with a single square which you just cut into three pieces. For my quilt I started with 12" blocks which I cut into a 4" wide strip (see the giraffes above), next cut the remaining 4" x 12" block into a 8" square and a 4" x 8" strip.

It was so quick and easy I got the whole quilt top done in a single night.
 

Now just to get it quilted before winter is over!
