The animal print from Libby, that is.
It's perfect for a toddler boy quilt. Since the fabric does all the work, I kept it simple. Just borders and chevrons. The chevron center is complete and ready for the borders to be added.
There's enough of the print (folded two ply here) to make borders up to 12" wide, as shown above. I'm thinking of reducing the width to 9 or 10" to have a more pleasing proportion. I worked it out in EQ and I think the 9" border option looks best. It would result in a quilt that measures 42" by 50". For a toddler, I think that's fine.
I'm so disappointed in all the photos I've tried to take of this fabric and this project. What looks like a washed out yellow in all the photos is really a very pretty bright yellow-green which matches the frogs in the print. Maybe when it's finished and I can get some outdoor shots the photos will come out better.
This will soon be a finished flimsy, but I'm planning on finishing the binding on the rainbow charm donation quilt for a Friday finish this week, so even though I dropped everything to make this one, it'll have to wait until I get that one finished.
