So there is an online quilting festival and you are supposed to post your favourite quilt. Not sure if your s'posed to post it now or later... but I figured now was OK.
Here's mine. It's a present for my brother and his wife's baby (due fairly soon). I've only made 4 quilts so didn't have many to choose from!
I made it here (Sudan)- took it with us to the UK and then the US in a bag, then posted it from the US to where he lives in Japan. Can't post it from here as it would never make it to Japan, and US is cheaper than UK!
The animals were cut out from some IKEA fabric.
The surrounding fabric was whatever I could find that I thought would work. A couple of shirts, T-shirts, jellabiya material (material you buy here to make a dress thing for guys here to wear), some fabric Matt got me when he went to Kenya, and various other bits and pieces bought in the US and UK.
Sandwiched in the middle is a white cotton sheet as you can't buy batting here. Actually I like how flexible and 'comfy' it feels with no batting.
The backing is a sheet.
I 'handquilted' (sewed as i don't know how to 'handquilt' really) around the animals/squares with different coloured embroidery threads. I like how it looks on the back - but my photos of the back weren't very successful.
(In case you're wondering, the photos were taken on our washing line in our yard - and it's entirely normal to have a bed in your yard here.)
