Animal Panel Quilt

The next quilt that I will be starting is an animal panel. I will be hand stitching the main part of the quilt. Once the quilt is done, I will be giving it to my nephew who just turned a year old. It is quite large, so he will be able to use it for quite a few years :) Pictures will be posted once I get the backing material and sandwich the pieces together.

Noah's Ark

Alright Everyone! I finally have pictures of the quilt. There was definitely a learning curve with this quilt. I didn't use a pattern as I thought that what I wanted to do for the front and back was straightforward, it wasn't. So After piecing the front and back and starting to sew it together, I needed to take it apart because it wasn't matching up. I also had to redo the strips on the front. I think it turned out well but definitely need to practice a quilt like this again to feel more confident. I love this panel and the way the hand stitching turned out. I hope this quilt is enjoyed for many years by my friend's little boy.
