It's a Jungle Out There!
48 x 64
It's finished and ready for giving or gifting!
Last year I tried to reduce my string scraps and sorted them into boxes by color group. When the sorting was done I had a box of pink and white strings, blue strings, green and brown strings, bright strings.
This is the second quilt I made from a box of brown and green strings. There were a few gold ones thrown in there too. I posted about the other quilt from the green and brown strings yesterday. I finished this top way back in March 2018 to be quilted this year. The time has come.
I also added in a variety of green and brown critter fabrics for the centers (are they really centers in a quarter log cabin or are they starters? ) - odd bits and pieces left over from bug jar quilts, I Spy swaps, etc.
When I found I didn't have 48 pieces of critter fabrics I threw in some glow in the dark eyes from the Halloween fabric stash. Here's looking at you, kid!
I used a tan sheet for the backing and quilted it with leaves in green variegated thread.
The binding is scrappy and also came from the box of strings. I sewed it down by machine using a blanket stitch.
By the time I get to my strings they are pretty stringy. Even after washing I can see a few stray threads here and there. Guess the quilt needs a shave.
