The Mighty Savannah

Hi there! I got to quilt another quilt on my bucket list! When my friend Stephanie called me and asked me if I was interested in quilting her Savannah Lion quilt she was making for Cherrywood Fabrics I didn't hesitate to say YES!!! This is a quilt I have seen floating around the internet and I have loved it. I knew I absolutely did not have the patience to make it, but I was dying for someone to have me quit theirs for them.

I knew just how I wanted to quilt it! I wanted straight lines in the face and a wild mane.

For that fantastic teal and aqua background I quilted small scale grid and swirls (which I am totally crushing on at the moment).

The eye got a swirl. I do wish I would have used black thread, but oh well,

I love this quilt. Wool batting, 4 5 different colors of thread and I think 5 days of quilting. I probably could have done it in 3 days, but my kids kept having to eat and I kept having the sleep at night and the pool called a couple times to ask where we were (not really, but we did go to the pool. It is summer after all.)

Have the best day ever!
