Sometimes I see a quilt pattern first and then visualise it in my own fabrics. This time, we found a wonderful fabric first. I bought this cute snake fabric because my little girl liked it so much. And when I saw Bonnie’s pattern, I knew it would be perfect!
This is a Moda fabric called “Sss-silly Safari” and designed by Cheri L. Strole. I’m going to use it for the outer borders.
I had lots of colourful scraps left over from another quilt I made for my daughter in 2008, which I combined with other brights from my stash for this project. My little one loves these happy colours.
Here are the first eight blocks assembled:
And more strips pinned and ready to sew:
Thank you very much, Bonnie, for sharing your lovely pattern!
