Seth's Zoo Animals Quilt is finished!

This quilt measures 62.5 inches by 55 inches, large enough for a toddler bed.
The white slashing is quilted with heart shaped leaves using Marathon polyester thread that looks and feels like quilting cotton thread.
The binding is 100% polyester rip stop nylon.
Instead of handing stitching the binding in place, I used a three stitch zig zag with variegated thread which gives the binding a lovely texture. 
 My initials and year.
The zoo animal print in the middle was stitched with 100% polyester variegated thread using the jesters' hats design.
 The back side is pieced lime green, red and yellow.
For more photos and details please check out my Seth's quilt on my blog. November's challenge is spirals..my next quilting project.

Happy stitching all.

good idea for a binding seems to me will last longer for a child for sure

That quilt is simply gorgeous and it really took my breath away. From the looks of it, this has really consumed all your time and effort in making this quilt a reality. Thus, this is truly a special and memorable quilt. I really adore you work coz it has an interesting concept and it is uniquely designed. Perfect!
