One more African themed quilt to go and then I'll be able to get to her Anna quilt! I'm itching to get started on that one. Here's another teaser! This is the centre medallion of her quilt.
She just got the backing fabric and I think it will work perfectly. I don't look for fabric that "matches" the quilt but I do look for fabric that will work with the quilt. In this case Mom wanted something soft and subtle so she chose a pale gold and cream floral print. It works well with the dark beige print that is the background for her medallion. The dark beige is on the left and the backing is on the right.
And now for another foundation pieced hexagon star. This one is a wonky star but each hexagon is identical.
If you haven't foundation pieced before you should know that the right side of your block will be on the blank side of the hexagon. When you look at the pattern below what you are looking at is the wrong side of your hexagon. The lines are your sewing lines. This means that the pattern on the hexagon is the reverse of the front.
So back to the garden. Yesterday you'll recall that Zebra Girl and Zebra Fellow went for a stroll when all of a sudden they heard something in the brush. So here's what happened next!
YIKES!!! It's Teetoo the Grey Panther from two doors down!! What do we do?
Zebra Fellow, not being much in the way of a great thinker, just does the big skedaddle!
Quick thinker that she is, the resourceful Zebra Girl turns and with all her strength pushes on the tree!
She really gives it some welly and one more good push!
and down comes the tree! SPLAT! Just like the house landing on the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz!
Fortunately for the Teetoo the Grey Panther it was only a "flesh wound" and he recovered quickly - mind you he did have a whopper of a head ache the next day! I doubt he'll mess with Zebra Girl again!
Until I post again, watch out for Teetoo the Grey Panthers and happy sewing!
