Okay, I'm not a true quilter. I don't have a longarm and I don't hand stitch anything, so this is my version of a quilt. It took me a couple days and I was done. All the tees have animals. I've been wanting to make this for a really long time, so I'm happy I'm finally done. Between the shirt strips are some regular fabric of animal print that I had on hand. (Next time I hope to make every other square a shirt). The back is just a queen sized sheet. I didn't use batting in the middle, I used a couple blankets (one cut in half, so yes that area is a bit wonky) for the middle. I loved the blankets, but they weren't very pleasing to the eye, so this was one way of spicing them up.

I think it looks great, and as long as you like it who cares if its a little wonky?
