Oliver's Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The quilt makes me smile! 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.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • cotton thread
