Alli-Gator has finally been stitched, pressed, sandwiched , quilted, and bound… I think I have tamed the beast ! Anyone that has read the previous posts on this little quilt know that it’s been a real learning curve for me. Yup, this project required a lot of Gator-Aide.



The colour in these outdoor pictures isn’t very good; winter lighting conditions leave a lot to be desired. The animal print in this project is an obvious favourite as I used it for the inner border, the backing and the binding… too much ?


His ferocious teeth have been toned down somewhat because they blend in so well with the background  😉  wouldn’t want to scare any littles now would I !


I went with organic wavy lines for the quilting – fitting for a reptile, eh ?

This little crib quilt measures in at approximately 35″ x 39″, in case you are wondering.

While there are things I would like to do differently if I made another one I think I will move on… hmmm, what next ? So many projects, so much fabric… so little time 🙂

Thanks for having a look, have a great weekend.

See ya later alligator, getting wild crocodile !

Linking up with Amanda at CrazyMomQuilts for Finish it up Friday.

    Great finish Colleen. I really like the broad border and the animal print is just right too. The ripple quilting fits the alligator perfectly. (My Mum has the original 78 record of Bill Haley and The Comets performing See You Later Alligator!)

    He is quite the reptile! And when worked up in my favorite (aqua) he’s a winner in my book! Loved seeing your snow pictures earlier – the farm looks so serene under that white blanket. Sadly, in upstate NY, we had a no-snow winter – UGH!
