What I Am Working On: Happy Hippo Hop In Progress

Remember the baby quilt I made back in February and had to rush because the date of the baby shower took me by surprise? Looking back, I am very happy with the way things worked out. The little guy was born on April 3, and by that time we were all social distancing, and I wouldn’t have been able to give the quilt to the new mom in person and see her face when she unwrapped those hippos. Anyway, I still needed to make a second version as a pattern sample. It was supposed to be finished by now, this weekend I would have been at the Langley quilt show but once again life happened, and we had to adjust our plans. My sample isn’t done yet as you might have guessed, but I am making (slow) progress. The top needs two more borders before it is ready for quilting. Here is another preview, and those smiling hippos still make me laugh every time I look at them.
