2-D Zoo Pool Quilt WIP

So here's what I'm working on right now. A quilt for a friend's nephew made from Alexander Henry's 2-D Zoo Pool fabric. She saw it on another quilt I made and wanted that for her nephew's quilt. Other than that, she left me to my own devices... my favourite kind of client!

I didn't want to do something so similar to the other quilt so I went heavy on the blue for the borders. I'm doing wonky blocks so after I finish the 11" square blocks, I cut them without measuring and slap on a white border, which I'll cut again when I'm figuring out placement.

I love this blue check fabric but I have no idea who it's by because the fat quarter I bought didn't have a selvage.

And neither did this blue dot fabric. I just love dots.

Off topic, Martha had one of her food editors, Anna Last on her show today. Anna's Aussie and hearing her talk, I miss Australia all over again. And now that Qantas ad is playing in my head... "I still call Austraaaaaalia hooooome".

Ooh, I love this idea. I have a similarly "left to my own devices" commissioned quilt to make, and have three featured fabrics that my friend likes. Love these fairly simple blocks to feature the desired fabrics!

That is going to be a stunning quilt - I love the fabrics, beautiful colours.
