Meet Trevor!


I found one strip of this wonderful animal print in a thrift store scrap bag. The blue and green solids all came from different bags, but they went together so I kitted it all up and waited for inspiration. There was such a limited amount of the animal print and I didn't want any of it to go to waste...



The Flexi Strip Baby Quilt Tutorial from Sew in Peace was exactly the idea I needed. It calls for three strips of the focus fabric, but I worked with what I had, squaring up the animal print and making the rest of the quilt to work around that piece.
