Tonight I got a little bit more time to work on the quilt top and made 8 more blocks. This is how it looks right now. It is about 24" square. I thought I wanted it 5 X 6, but I am not sure if I am going to like the incomplete square look. I may have to make it a 6 X 6 to finish the look. However, that's 20 more blocks and I am not sure I have enough strips for that. Below are some close-ups of the strips.
lion eyes and ears
Hippo nostrils! My favorite!
Hippo teeth and monkey faces. This fabric is fun. Okay, Mom, look. Does that gray fabric (light gray calico-ish) look familiar now? I promise it came from you.
