I made this for my great-niece, who has a thing going with her grandma (my sister) about birds. This was my first time using a panel and I struggled with how to incorporate the smaller pictures into the quilt. After lots of looking at quilts, I came up with this design. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 60" square.
I made this for a great-niece, whose mom was adopted from Korea and her dad is Korean and they live in the US. So Trip Around the World is an appropriate pattern for her quilt! I quilted hearts in some of the plain squares to show she's surrounded by love. After I bought the animal fabric, my artist son chose most of the coordinating fabrics. Hand stitched and hand quilted, 63" square.
