Final Finish for January (Sloths #2)

8 Comments

This baby quilt will brighten your cloudy day! My sloth panel contained four images, facing in opposite directions because they were for making stuffed sloths. While I used all my restraint to keep Sloths #1 very low volume, I didn’t even try here!

The tree fabric is the same as the first one, and I love it. It’s a paisley batik left over from a quilt back (strangely, I can’t remember which one).

The plain background was perfect for quilted leaf shapes. The variegated Fantastico from Superior is subtle, but adds a nice sheen.

My favorite part is the vibrant backing. It’s been in my stash since 2014, and I finally found its destiny. I love large prints, but they don’t fit everywhere.

These little quilts turned out to be 33″ x 40″. You’ll find them in my Etsy shop soon.

And that’s all the sloths! Back to squares and triangles.

  4. Your sloths are adorable! And the backing fabric on this is a winner!

  5. Those sloths are adorable and I love the bright green background. That backing fabric looks like a Marimekko. Also fabulous!
