Where can you see lions…?

And now for a post about that second new quilt I told you about last week….

In late 2019 I added a few charm packs to a Missouri Star order, one of which was Moda’s Safari Life

And on my last trip to Lens, I picked up a remnant of aqua fabric what was just perfect to pair with it.

I chopped it up into 5″ squares to pair with the charm pack and set to making HSTs. Now, I love HSTs – they are easy to make and so versatile… but…

Trimming them to size is soooooo tedious. And there were 64 of them! Still, I stuck with it and after what seemed like ages, they were all ready to put into the final layout.

A simple, but effective chevron pattern. It’s one I’ve wanted to try for quite some time. Once it was all sewn together, it was a little smaller than I wanted, so I dug into the stash for something for a simple border. The only thing I had in the right quantity was some marble fabric leftover from Dave’s quilt. It did the job, and brought the final size out to a respectable 39 inches square.

Some time in the near future, I’ll get up to Mom’s and get quilting…

… and it will be finished off with more of the aqua fabric for the binding, and these cute flannel lions on the back.

And if you’re wondering about the title for this post… it’s inspired by a silly song from a silly site. Enjoy!

    I love it! What fun material. I have a kit in that exact chevron pattern buried somewhere in the stash. It was the first kit I ever bought but I was too afraid to use it because I was terrible at HST, Still am but I think I may give that one a try this summer. It has summer themed material.
