Zoo Bop Quilt

I'm branching out and trying to create more children's quilts since they are so colorful and pretty quick to make. When I saw the assorted Menagerie Fabrics by Pink Light Designs for Robert Kaufman I knew I had to use them for some fun and funky kids quilts.

I cut the print with black and white assorted animals on lime green background in 6 " squares and used a variety of designer fabrics to frame them. I used several Ta Dot fabrics, Kona solids and even some Flea Market Fancy and framed the whole thing with Ready, Set, Snow by Me and My Sister Designs.

I backed it Cozy Cotton Flannel in Diamond Green. Quilted in my favorite meandering design. Measures 44" x 40".

Such a bright and happy quilt!
