Recently a very generous fabric designer sent me some FQs to play with. The line was Savanna Bop and the designer is Thomas Knauer Link to his blog
I thought I knew what I was going to do with the fabric, but the more I got into the project, the more I hated it. So I went with another direction, one that I LOVED. The solid orange fabric is actually Tangerine. And since Tangerine Tango is the color of the year, I feel this is a very contemporary take on the quilt. I really love how the fabric is childish, without being babyish and can be completely gender neutral. And there are these adorable giraffes that remind me of a pull toy I had as a child.
This quilt is approximately 50″ square, the perfect size for an afternoon in the park kind of baby blanket. I pieced a few of the FQs into the back. I love that print the most and couldn’t imagine cutting into it. I think those would make awesome quilt backings!
Here is Savanna Bop…..
