Zoo Pool Quilt... A Little Differently

I've made quite a few of the Wonky Zoo Pool quilts as custom orders and since they were all ordered based on the first one, they were all made the same way -- wonky blocks on the back and front with the same backing fabric. Enough of all that! I really don't fancy making replicas of a quilt but I am in love with the 2D Zoo Pool fabric.

Not that this new one's vastly different, but it's not wonky and the back has a strip of strips instead of blocks.

My lovely assistant volunteered to hold up the quilt (I wonder what happy pill he took today!) so I have nice shots the front and back.

The back's a lot like the Birdie quilt's. I just love the look of the strips bordered by the white against the dark blue dot fabric.

For a change, I used the same green Kona fabric I used within the blocks for the binding. I actually prefer it to the blue binding I'd used before, especially against the dark blue.

It ended up measuring 39.5" by 49" and is currently available in the store SOLD! :)

very cute! And I love the back of this too. The strip is nicely off-set by the white. I totally agree with you. Not that you asked :)

I love those strips on the front edge! Very cool - haven't seen that done before.

...I mean, besides on your quilts. It's probably one of the cool things about it that make people choose this quilt!

I like the strips on the back. I love this fabric and will never tire of seeing your different quilts made with it.
