Quilting the Zebra

I went to a local store yesterday to buy thread to quilt the Daft Zebras. In conversation with the store's owner, I mentioned I wanted to quilt this (I had the flimsy with me) like a zebra. She pulled out a book on quilting and opened it up to outline drawings of animals. I looked at her quizzically.

"What do I need that for?"

"You said you wanted to quilt it in zebras."

"I know how to draw. I don't need a book like that. Besides, that's not what I meant."

When I drew what I wanted in the air, her face brightened. "Perfect."

So here it is. Look for pictures of the finished quilt very soon.

if it looks this good from the back, it must be spectacular from the front!

I'm waiting with baited breath to see this beauty! I've been following your journey on this one, and it's been fun.

I'll bet that lady at the shop was just flabbergasted. What a hoot!

The quilting looks wonderful. I can't wait to see the quilt finished.
