Animal Party quilt - FINISHED!

I'm so excited to have this one off my WIP pile and on my little guys bed.  It was my first attempt at wonky blocks, and for the quilting I did wavy lines.  After washing & drying, it measures 52" x 80".

The fabric is Animal Party by Amy Schimler, the binding is Kona orange, and the backing is a beautiful soft minky called Balloon Party by Robert Kaufman.

I made a matching valance for his window that you can see in the corner of this picture (it's just fabric wrapped around styrofoam and then nailed to the wall).

Oh that turned out so CUTE! Have you thought about using the animals and making a little pennant strung along the top of the bedpost against the wall?
