On my latest quilt guild meeting I managed to get three quilt panels for free, and I knew they would be perfect for a charity quilt. Giraffes and zebras are walking on the Savannah in Africa.
Below is a detailed picture of two of the panels.
I had an idea of the quilt design ready very fast, and when a lady in my quilt guild donated this backing fabric it was 100% clear.
This is the resulting quilt. I kept the width of the panels, because you don't always need to cut up fabric into small pieces to make a quilt.
The warm yellow of the backing is represented in the solid yellow strips which divides the panels from the warm fall foliage.
The black strip and the leafy border frames the quilt in a nice way.
I named the quilt Golden Savannah, where the zebras and giraffes are running wild.
Straight line quilting with the walking foot made a nice an quick finish. The binding was constructed from odd 2.5" strips of matching colors.
The finished quilt is approximately 32" x 40", a good looking, golden baby quilt.
This is my tenth charity quilt for the year 2023, and number 102 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.
Keep on quilting!
