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

I love the colors you used here! I've seen that pattern before but have always passed it by because I just can't get past the colors they used. After seeing yours though, this one is going straight to the top of my list!

Awesome work! I love it! How long did it take? Hope she loves it!

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.

Maybe some fray check on the knots? or retie them in square knots?
I hadn't thought of fray check! I used surgeons knots (?), just like a square but with an extra twist in it, if that makes sense. Then I did a square on top of that. I'm thinking I will break out the fray check though, just to be safe. Thanks!!!

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.

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Halo game quilt on: February 16, 2012 12:32:28 PM
When I made my husband's Gears of War (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=398193.0) quilt, my son all but demanded that I make him a Halo quilt, so here it is. Instead of making a binding for this one, I just wrapped the fleece around to the front. Since I hand tied this one it just seemed to make more sense to me. I have no idea why, lol.

When trying to find a good Halo symbol/logo I came across this one in a few places. I'm not 100% sure it is one that is even used in the game but Thomas said that was the one he wanted because it shows the helmet. Apparently to a six-year-old, the helmet is everything, lol.

I used regular embroidery floss for the ties but am already seeing them come loose. Any suggestions for tha? I really don't want to use yarn, but I suppose if that is what is needed to make it last I'm up for it.
Thanks for looking!!

I really like how you put them all together. And it is hard to make zebra look manly but you did a great job!!
