NewFO: Wild Kingdom

I know...you're saying, but Sarah you wanted to focus on UFOs this year...why did you start another new project??

Well I questioned it a little myself but when one is up in the middle of the night not feeling well and you need to work on something mindless to while away the hours, you start the new project you have been drooling over without asking too many questions.


I have drafted this in EQ but don't have the graphic handy - you'll just have to trust me that it's going to be awesome. I mean I *have* been ruminating over this jelly roll for 6 or 7 years to find just the right project...

The jelly roll has 50 animal prints. I cut the strips in half so I would have more variety and sewed the first set of half strips in to pairs.


This week I am taking 1 minute breaks while spring cleaning to subcut them in to 3.5" lengths. After I get this half sewn in to 4 patches I'll work on the other set of the half strips.

I'm still (and always, it seams) on the lookout for a good black to use as "sashing"... I feel like I should just buy a bolt of it if I ever find a really good one...

Looking forward to seeing the progress of this 'awesome' quilt. A great jelly roll set.

Okay, I guess you can start a new project if you want to. : )
I am curious to see where the wild things will take you from here!

There have been times when I could have used some of those animal prints. Can't wait to see what you have planned for them.

This will be fun to watch come 'alive'! Do you not like Kona's solid black? That's what I used for the pineapple quilt -- I like it lots. :)
