What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make extra squares to give yourself plenty of options, and play around with the strips too. I added squares of the Birch animal print fabric to take full advantage of the beautiful characters and their movements. I chose where to cut the strips carefully so that they were almost fussy cut - looks like a lot of monkeys swinging around the quilt.

Thanks for your very kind words. This was one of my favorite quilts to make because I learned a fun riff on the rail fence quilt and the fabric made me smile!
