Q123 – Blue Zoo – Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Our new quilt and wall hanging Blue Zoo has arrived at its new home in South Carolina.

Blue Zoo is the celebration and welcoming of a new grand-nephew.

The construction and piecing of Blue Zoo follows the lines of a simple modern-style quilt. It is four-and-a-bit window frames on a light blue background. The following is an image of my original design-draft. The Michael Miller Baby Zoology Sea was chosen as the focus material. Complementary fabrics were picked which included the Moda Bella Light Blue background, and the Michael Miller Baby Play Stripe Sea and Dumb Dot Charcoal.

Here is our first draft -

And the top construction -

The dimensions of Blue Zoo are: Width 42 ½” (108 cms) and Length 60” (152 cms).

The quilting of bamboo canes fills the background and negative space. Each of the Zoology Seas windows is quilted with a pebbling to provide a sort of bubble-glass effect.
