This is Linda's sweet Animal Parade baby quilt. She used applique designs in two pattern books to create her quilt, Animal Parade and Animal Parade 2 by Cheri Leffler. She based the background and owls on a pattern in Animal Parade called 'Whoo Dat and then added the other animals creating her own final design.
I quilted double leaves in the outer border, stippled the background and SID around the animals. I quilted CC and feathers in the top and bottom pieced stars.
Linda used cotton and wool to do the appliqued animal. She embroidered the bees and ladybugs too!
The batting is Quilters Dream Wool, so lovely to quilt with!
I used teal and yellow So Fine for the majority of the quilt and then as I quilted details on the animals I matched thread colours.
