Menagerie Quilt

I had so much fun making this quilt.
Menagerie Quilt
The fabric is Menagerie by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel and I am in love with it.  The florals, the metallics, and the tigers, it is just gorgeous. 

Menagerie Quilt
This Menagerie fabrics are from the September Culcita Box and the solid is a Free Spirit solid called Mist.  It is just slightly off-white in a really pretty, creamy way.

I'm sure this block has a name, but I don't know what it is. A few months ago I drafted it in EQ7 and have been waiting for just the right project.  I supersized the block and my quilt finished up at 57" square.

I quilted it with an organic crosshatch, which means that the lines are slightly wavy and are randomly spaced.

The backing is my favorite print from the collection.  Love these colors! The binding is a green FreeSpirit Solid (not sure of the name).

The quilt is now listed in my Etsy shop.
Finished size: 57" x 57"
Collection: Menagerie by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel

  1. Beautiful quilt Erica. Great block design and the way you have used value makes the outer tips of the star almost appear to vibrate.
