While visiting my daughter’s house, I was happy to see her quilt again. I thought you might like to see it too. Hayley was into Zebras at the time, and this is the design I used to make her a quilt to take to college. I bought some of the fabric from a website called Keepsake Quilting. This is a single bed size quilt; I machine pieced the top together, and hand quilted it myself.
This is the scallop pattern I used to quilt the zebra mid-section.
The trim and border

The corners all look like this. The single zebra square is stitched in place with a button hole stitch done by hand.
The quilt label on the back reads: Hayley, you are a joy to me! I love you. I will be thinking of you and wishing the very best for you always! ~Mama
I think it is a cool blanket made with love for someone I was really going to miss not being home on a regular basis anymore!
