Yay! Another finish!

It seems that my progress on any quilting projects these days is so slow but then the finishes come all around the same time.  In my last post, I mentioned that I needed to find time to sandwich and quilt the baby quilt that had been hanging on my design wall. Drum roll please....
Not only did I need to get it done because the baby shower is coming soon but I also needed room on my design wall for the piecing of a wedding quilt. 
All the block pieces are cut, and 6 blocks are made...only 24 more to go! Pictures later!

This pattern is a version of a 9 patch with sashing separating the squares. I got my inspiration from this quilt.
All the fabric is from my stash! The main zoo print fabric is 2-d Zoo by Alexander Henry and the background is Kona White. I used a combination of 6 different print fabrics for the blocks. 
The back is pieced from fabrics from the top and the binding is scrappy...also made from pieces left over from the top.
I quilted a large X through the blocks and then overlaid a diamond shape. 
You can see it better in the first 2 pictures.
Along the larger sashing and the borders, I straight line quilted 1/2" apart. This gave it some structure yet allows it to be soft with some drape.
All labeled and is ready for the baby shower. I named this quilt Blue Zoo.
Another finish that I am so happy with!  
Definitely a feel good moment!
