Made for my 8-year-old daughter. She picked out this fat quarter bundle and told me she wanted zebra on the back. I had planned on using fleece but found this zebra fur for $1 less and ran with it. It is sooo super soft that I cant imagine having used the fleece now. I used a free pattern from the Moda Bake Shop called "Sugar Pop N Change" and would love to use it again.

It was so much harder to take pictures of this one than I thought it would be. There is silver on this fabric and it just really catches any light at all.

Got a few better pics.

Not too long really. Once I get going I don't want to stop, so it only takes me a few days (I'm a stay at home mom). Her face lit up when she came home from school and saw it finished.

She's got great taste in fabric!  How was it quilting through the zebra?

Pretty easy until I got to the borders. Since I had to piece the back to make it big enough, there were places where I was stitching through 6 layers of fur and two layers of quilt. I had to go very slowly and use the hand wheel, even with a heavy duty needle.

That's a gorgeous quilt!  Your daughter has excellent taste!  The zebra makes it even more unique.  Great job!
