Camp Loopy Fabric Safari update

I am cruising right along on my June Camp Loopy sewing project.  Only four days in and all I have left to stitch for the front of it is the border blocks, which are about half done.

You may remember almost about a month ago as I was planning this project, I had been playing with blocks in EQ and at one point had a section that looked like this

horns  Those pieces that twisted and turned reminded me of squiggly horns some types of antelopes have.

    • It’s a big wallhanging – I think when the borders blocks are added it’s about 45″ from top to bottom and 70+” wide – can’t remember the exact width but between 70 and 75″ I think.

  1. how unique. You really have a great eye. I would have seen a very complicated applique pattern.

    • I could have seen a very complicated applique pattern too which would have been kind of fun to applique those twisty horns, but since I have to start and finish (quilted and bound) between June 1 and June 30, simple was best, especially as large as it will end up.
