This one uses blues left over from "Math Is an Expletive" so there wasn't much sewing to get the quilt ready. I did make a few seams but in no time the quilt sandwich was ready for quilting. I decided to add some extra batting in the lower left corner and quilted around it, making a square trapunto area.
Three buttons and a small loop on another side.
A piece of red cording with heavy knots on the ends to keep it from raveling and to add even more texture.
And sewn into the quilt is an old key. I was worried that it would be too rough for frail fingers.
The label is written directly on the quilt backing.

- TGIFF (#41) at Sew Fresh Quilts where Lorna has her equally cute "animal antics for Friday"--a giraffe love quilt that is an original pattern and stunning!
