Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Animal Finish


I found this animal panel (“Bramble” by Moda) and the glen plaid for the backing. The animals have great patterns, and I thought it would be fun to add more small cream and black prints around them. It was, but pretty soon my eyes were throbbing from all that pattern.

The borders were supposed to be glen plaid, but I switched them out for a slightly calmer fabric.

I used a black Grunge for the binding. We were looking at stripes on Twitter, but I just couldn’t do any more pattern!

I do like it now that I don’t have to look at it so closely. 36″ x 42″ Find this sharp little quilt in my Etsy shop soon.
