Please Don't Feed the Bears

Oooops! Forgot to show this one to you! I'm busy getting ready for the AQM, and looking after Archie, and my head is spinning ........
Please don't feed the bears ..... they're already stuffed!
P.S. We all work better under pressure ..... don't we!?!?

Josh's Jungle

Here it is! "Josh's Jungle" (named after our youngest grandson) - just in time for the AQM in Sydney.
It has pockets for toys, animals, cards, books, or "secret treasures" - a joy for any little one who loves animals! I have made it using Shadow Play and Simpatico fabrics - all readily available, and the colour codes and quantities are itemised on the back cover. The black background has little spots which give a lovely "starry" look to the quilt.
The pattern will be available from patchwork shops next week.
I had fun making this one!
I will let you know shortly of shops that will be making up kits.
P.S. It will be on display at the AQM (Australian Quilt Market), in the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, Sydney. Show is open to trade only on Saturday 2nd June (10am - 5pm) and Sunday 3rd June (10am - 4.30pm).

That means quilt finished, label made, pattern written, pattern costed, photo taken, cover printed, website updated, newsletters sent out ............
I will post each animal as I complete them.
He's a climber!!!!!! Cheeky monkey!!!!!!
