Sheltered, a quilt for Trimmings2011

This quilt is made up of raw edged improv log cabins with, mostly, animals, birds and flowers in the centres, sheltered.

Sheltered is a wall quilt, about 28" x 40", made from Umbrella Prints trimmings. Trimmings are random bits of the beautiful Umbrella Prints fabrics. This quilt used three packages. The background is Kona Coal and the binding is Ta Dot from Michael Miller.

I have entered it in the Umbrella Prints Trimmings2011 contest, the prizes include some of their fabric, which I am in love with. It would be fun to have more to make a bigger quilt. There are a lot of wonderful entries so far, just being part of such a talented group is pretty nice.

I showed you the back already, but here is it again. I am really happy with the quilting on this. The thread is a variegated gray so it shows up nicely and the colour changes really do make it more dynamic.
