Today's progress on this quilt included piecing the rest of the blocks, squaring and trimming all 36 blocks...
...laying them out "randomly". (I've found that a random layout really isn't so random - spent an hour arranging and rearranging blocks for the right balance) and sewing the blocks together.
Once it was laid out, I just stood there and smiled. All my hesitation and anxiety over the colors I'd chosen melted away.

When dear hubby arrived home tonight it was still lying out in the living room floor. Seeking his opinion I asked him what he thought.....
His first question, "Are you making that for me!?!"
"Why?" I asked.
"I want it, I love the colors!"
Sadly for him, it's not his. But, I do enjoy having his stamp of approval!
|"Animal Print Quilt" isn't a very creative name for this beauty. |
I do need a better name for it than, "Animal Print Quilt," but so far that's the best I've come up with. Not very creative at all.
A thought just hit me............what do you think of, "Safari Explosion" as a name for this quilt?
I have fallen head over heals in LOVE with this quilt!!
