Zoo Animals Quilted

Ready for binding:
My Zoo Animals quilt, made with blocks designed by Kristy @ Quiet Play. I haven't chosen a binding fabric yet. What colour would you use?

I'm happy with my quilting in the border. I used a ruler for the wavy line (after watching the Craftsy Rulers class on the weekend) and the rest was free-hand.

This was the unfinished project I worked on in April, then carried over to May, and continued working on this month. Because I worked on this, I didn't make any progress on June's UFO, my feathered star wall hanging. But I should at least have this one finished and crossed of my list before the end of July!

  1. Hmmm, dark blue to pick up that colour from the sashing and the parrot, or be outrageous and go for pink. Beautiful quilting.

  2. I love how this came out; your quilting looks just right. I think picking up that blue would look well....hugs, Julierose

  3. Wow, that came out beautifully, love the quilting. I might go for the blue, or even a grey

  4. Great quilting in the border, and everywhere else, for that matter! A super finish; all those animals look so interested in life outside the zoo!
    As for the binding I think I would use the brown fabric the raccoon is leaning on, or simply stay with the border fabric.

  5. How cute! I knew those blocks looked familiar. I follow Kristy's blog.

  6. I would use a dark blue with a very thin pink piping
