Monkey and Elephant Quilt

I decided to whip up a quick quilt for a friend's new baby boy.  Given my limited quilting experience, I decided a variation on a coin design would be good.  I bought the fabric from Spotlight and was quite pleased with how it all came together in the end.

The main fabric was light grey with multicoloured dots, while the animal print fabric featured monkeys, giraffes, elephants and lions. I used the green fabric to do the binding, I thought it looked good.

One side was quite plain, with just three narrow strips of the animal print.

Grey with feature strips

Lots of animals!

The other side of the quilt had a variation of the coins design.  It was reasonably easy to put together.
The other side, with less grey and more of the feature fabrics

I actually finished this quilt a few months ago, but it took me a while before everything aligned so that I could give over the quilt.  Apparently baby is very happy with it, yay!
