I pulled this project out again after a two week break. I was in my LQS recently, and they had a panel of adorable animals pinned to the wall behind the register. Julia had seen all four animals that week, so the fabric had to come home with me!
My original intention was to make two pillows for Julia's bed to welcome her home in December. But once I got going, Instagram decided they had to stay together in a wall hanging or baby quilt.
I've been trying to move them around and add various coordinating prints to make it large enough for a baby quilt, but it just isn't working.
Some zebra print sashing and the coordinating pink pennant print will work for a wallhaning.
The collection is called Hello World from Blend Fabrics. The animal panel is called Welcoming Committee and the pink print is called Glory Days. How sweet is that?
If you'd like to see Julia's photos of these animals and more (including treadle sewing machines in the tailor's shop), please visit her blog, Julia's Journey. The spike in blog traffic will freak her out!
