The "Wild" Side

I have a granddaughter who is in love with anything animal, but especially the exotic kind.  I decided to find several kinds of fur fabrics and make her a quilt for Christmas.  I had never used this type of fabric before and don't know that I will again!  It was really hard to sew and make sure that everything was straight and even and matched up, what with the different piles, etc.  Some stretched more than others and some seemed very fragile.  But I did it!  I chose the hot pink backing as she also has a very definite feminine side.  She is very tomboyish most of the time, but loves her dresses and pretty things also.  I calculate this quilt to be about a two-yarder.  Look at it from two yards away and it looks nice.  Don't get too close to see the mistakes!  :)    Have a wonderful day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
