The fabrics I used are from the Expedition Blue colorway of the collection. I’m really smitten by them. I think the colors are gorgeous and vibrant and there are such unique prints. Really cool.
I made a crib size version of this quilt that I made last year. I love this pattern for really showing off fabrics. I’ll be republishing this pattern later this year with the crib size version included.
The quilting on this one was done free-hand by Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting. I just gave her free-reign to do what ever she wanted and LOVE how it turned out.
I took this quilt with me to bind in the car on a recent family road trip to southern Utah over President’s Day weekend. So we had to take advantage of a nice back drop for a good photo shoot. It’s too desert-dry for a safari, but it was dramatic never the less.
We did do some exploring of our own, so we can count it as an expedition. Above is Snow Canyon outside of St. George.
We also explored a new spot called Anasazi Ridge filled with ancient petroglyphs. My boys were in rock-climbing heaven and finding the petroglyphys was like a treasure hunt. There were LOTS of them too.
