Lions and Tigers and Zebras, Oh My.....

This quilt is for one of my guild's Quilts on Wheels charity. The top was designed and pieced by one of the guild members. I let the quilt top hang out on the design wall for a couple of days before I quilted it. Actually, I quilted the 3 other charity quilts I blogged about last week while I was getting to know this one.
In the large focus fabric corners I wanted to quilt something that looked kind of organic. I decide to do a fern that looks sort of grassy. Here is a close up of one of the corners.
I also played with different items in a line dancing type of quilting. I did variations of the same them is all of the half square triangles and even in the green borders.
I really like how the large beige half square triangles came out. I used black thread in the small black half square triangles, but used beige in the large black triangles around the center square to add texture.
I really like the back of the this quilt.

Tomorrow I am going to work on a quilt for me... I just need to decide which one. :)
