This is a pattern that i bought at a quilt show....many years ago. it is by Debora Konchinsky and has 40 animals in it. I changed it up a bit and used the same fabric for all the backgrounds. I hand appliqued the animals onto the blocks and used wool felt. I finished piecing it on November 26, 2012 and it finally got quilted today.
It is 84 x 88
I did a freeehand mish-mash of quilting...swirls, lines, water, trees, whatever.
Here are some close ups
Do you see the fish? several of the birds have fish.
The back was pieces of stash fabrics stitched together.
