Work in Progress Animal Crackers

These are the embroideries for one of my favorite baby quilts. It is called "Animal Crackers" by JoAnn Mullaly of JAM Patterns. She is retiring, but you can probably get the pattern from The Country Loft in La Mesa, California.

I have made too many of these to count in so many color ways. I made one last year with the lime green embroideries for a friend who was doing the nursery in jungle theme. So I called it "Welcome to the Jungle" (I am still a huge Guns and Roses fan!). I had so much left over fabric that I will be able to get another one done from the leftovers. I never took a picture of the one last year, but it was lime green, royal blue, orange, yellow, and black and white--one of the cutest color combinations ever.The crocodile, elephant, and rhino are done.

Now, I am working on the words, the lion, the tiger, the zebra, the chimp, and the giraffe. This is mindless stitching I can do as I am unwinding from my busy days back at work. (Huge sigh!!!!)

Eventually, it will be put together really scrappy. Thanks for dropping by!
