Aiden's Alaskan Animals

What are you most proud of? Figuring out the math to piece it all together to come out with the proper size backing. Now, if I actually manage to get the gold strips to be relatively straight lines after I put this together and quilt it, I will be ecstatic!

You Can Make This

Q&A with Polarjo

Artmomma asked:
Holding straight line thoughts for you! Will you quilt this yourself? Being creative with the back really adds interest.
Polarjo answered:
This is for my seven year old great-nephew, Aiden. I wanted to make something that wouldn't be too childish, that he could continue to appreciate into adulthood.
