Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 11 Blog Tour 


Meet our girl Hippolina.  She is block number 1053 on page 38.  She makes me giggle!
She was on a recent safari when someone snapped this Polaroid shot!




Being the photogenic girl that she is (as well as an outgoing hippo) she gathered a gaggle of her friends for Portraits of Jungle Things.





We blew her up a bit to a 14" block and added some borders to create this  40" x 56" quilt.  A twin size version is included in the pattern, plus pillows!
Check us out!  New Whistlepig Patterns
