Today I’m going to share with you photo’s of my “Amazing Technicolor Lionheart” Quilt for the Cherrywood Fabric Lion King Challenge.
I used the same raw edge piecing technique that I did for the Amazing Technicolor Dream Heart. I had such a fantastic time watching this quilt come to be. I knew it was going to be either a fantastic fail or a fantastic win … pretty sure it was a win.
The “Amazing Technicolor Lionheart” is the third quilt in my raw edge piecing series. Using a foundation fabric, I sewed different raw edge strips of Cherrywood fabrics to create a lion face inspired by the program from the 2010 Lion King Broadway Musical. Raw edge strips of grab bag Cherrywood fabric was used for the background of the piece. After layering the top with batting and a back I free motion quilted over the entire piece. Cording, hand-dyed yarn and Angelina fibers was added as embellishments to add the perfect final touches to the piece. To finish, I added a faced binding.
I was thrilled to find out that my quilt made the first cut and will be featured in the Lion King Book (which you can pre-order here). Now it’s going through the next round of judging to see if it makes it into the traveling exhibit. My fingers are crossed!
