As with the Giraffe Love quilt I finished last week, I had a hard time choosing my backing fabric and looked to my online friends for help in making my decision. In the end I went with a different black and white print called “8 Days a Week” by Ampersand for Windham Fabrics.
The quilting was performed using my walking foot, spaced 1/2″ apart, quilted using Superior Threads’ Poly Quilter #331 in Lemon Chiffon thread. This thread is subtly variegated and warmly depicts the sun kissed breezes blowing among the Acacia trees of Africa.
For the binding I had thought about using a black and white stripe. But I dug into my stash for something that would blend in with the quilt top and found this Up in the Sky by Dan Morris for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. I think those blues go perfect with the background of the quilt. I think those blues go perfect with the background of the quilt and provides a striking frame for this fun quilt.
