Balancing Hippopotami

Balancing Hippopotami Greek Cross Quilt

Balancing Hippopotami
September 2014

Life is a balancing act, and some days can feel more like a balancing hippopotami act!

This is Shar Jorgenson’s Crazy Quilt design. In the bottom right corner (shown in detail in upper right corner) is the pretty crocheted edging off of one of Granny’s hankies. I bound the top to the polka dot fleece backing by strategically tacking a ‘bow’ on each hippo’s head.

The majority of the fabrics used were leftovers from the Moms and Granny, while the star of the quilt – the hippos – was a new fabric.

I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in September 2014.
