Safari Party HOOP QUILT

Apr 26, 2017

This is the latest HOOP QUILT finish!  It's made with the most precious prints from Melissa Mortenson's new fabric line Safari Party.  Looks at those prints!  Some really fun animals to fussy cut for framing.  Instead of making 16 HSTs - I substituted 4 fussy cut animals as squares to show off the line and used the other prints as accents in the HSTs.

I'm loving these gold accents!  The gold zebra is my fav and the pink feather print looks fantastic with a little glitter in gold.  I decided to try my hand at stitching with this metallic gold embroidery thread from DMC around the circle of the hoop.

It sure looks cute, but metallic thread is hard to work with!  I'd never tried it before and it was a bit challenging.  It looks great though and picks up all the gold accents in the fabric.  This HOOP QUILT would look so fun in a nursery, don't you think?

This hoop is part of my Quilt Market prep - if you will be at Market in St. Louis in May, look for this HOOP in Melissa's booth for Safari Party in Riley Blake-land.

  2. That DMC metallic is the worst. I've had good luck with Kreinik braid or Sulky metallic made for machine embroidery.
