Black and White Animals with Rainbows Child’s Quilt

I bought these adorable animal panels and the white border from Funky Monkey Fabrics in the summer when they had a sale on Dear Stella fabrics. I didn’t have a real plan for them other than I thought I might make pillow covers with them.

Then I thought I would like to make a kid’s quilt with them but needed to add to the panels to make it bigger. I collected fabrics in rainbow colours from my scrap bins and cut the panel in half. Then I added the strips of rainbows. I then added the coordinating white border. I felt the quilt should still be a bit bigger as I was thinking it could be for a toddler bed so I ordered the black border and the binding from Thread Count Fabrics. This quilt is 45″ x 51.5″.

The black fabric has a white print of mountains on it and the binding has sticks. So cute! This quilt would be lovely for a family who loves camping or spending time in nature. It’s perfect for my own family actually. 🙂

The animal panels are adorable and they all have virtues. I quilted around them in stipple quilting with variegated rainbow thread in 80 weight from Aurifil.

The llama panel says "Be Silly"
The ever popular llama.

This was a fun quilt to make and a great one for using up scraps. This quilt is available in my Etsy shop.
