Ally Gator


I just received patterns for these (there are 10 altogether) in the mail this afternoon, so after cleaning out the pantry and tidying the kitchen I decided to reward myself with starting a new quilt.....this one is rather special...A very good friend of mine, in fact best friend, is due to have a baby in October and so this quit is for her, and her baby!

I picked this block first because I had picked the fabric for the crocodile even before getting the pattern. I love the green swirly fabric for the head and foot....I'm not sure about the bird....I'm hoping it will look more like a bird after stitching it down!

I love the fabrics you have chosen AJ! I can't decide which block to start first and think I may need some stash enhancements first, but I will keep asn eye on yours for inspiration.

Looks great AJ! I love the green in the alligators body.

WOW, I cant believe you have already started. How efficient! I had better pull my socks up and get started buying some fabrics and picking my first block.

Oh this is going to be so cute AJ!

I love those greens & I think the bird looks too cute - although he's keen sitting where he's sitting!!!

Oh and so sorry but I've tagged you :D

Ally looks terrific! I'm almost wishing I'd gone in with you too - and I don't like following patterns! My favourite is the skin fabric, and that white is cool, too!
