Safari Quilt


This child's charity quilt was  made by my church quilt group that included beginner to experienced quilters. Each block was done individually as QAYG (quilt as you go). It measures 40" square. The top was made entirely from stash but I purchased a striped fabric for the backing. I'll try to get a photo of the back before it is gifted to the charity we chose.

The pattern is Safari from Shiny Happy World. Shiny Happy World has a lot of great patterns in this style. I took advantage of a sale and purchased quite a few. I'm planning to do one for my daughter's best friend who has a baby boy. Thinking of this: Beep Beep.
