Sew & Tell Friday

Two summers ago, I was working on a quilt for a friend's little one.  We had had our youngest a few month's before, and I so loved that quilt that I decided to make one just like it for our little guy Joshua.  I cut the fabric out at the same time so that when some free time opened up to finish Joshua's quilt, it would go that much more quickly.  Fast forward a year and a half, and his quilt was still sitting undone.  And his second birthday is coming up next month.  Oops.  We won't talk about how many other quilts for other people I finished while his sat undone.  So this quilt got put on the fast-track, and I finally finished it this week.  Hooray!
I love all the blues and greens and the geometric shapes in the quilt.  He loves to find all his favorite animals.  Everybody wins.
The backing was simple - a panel of the green.  The fabrics are Alexander Henry's 2D Zoo in pool and Anna Griffin's Darcey line from a few years back.
The binding was also simple.
My favorite part, other than having something off the to-do list?  How much he likes his quilt. 
Now go check out all the other finishes this week over at Sew & Tell Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

This quilt looks cool and refreshing! What a little cutie your son is, and what a great smile! Good finish. I'm glad that your generosity to others has paid off and you could finish a project of your own, with positive feedback from your little guy.

By the way, I'd never put "binding" and "simple" in the same sentence. :-) I'm inspired by those of you who make it look easy.
