Idayu had this lovely Alphabet Animal panel (I'd love to have one!) and sent it over to me and simply asked me to do it up nice for her lil' boy. It was bright with such lovely colors. One look at it and I knew what I wanted to do with it. So it was a 2" solid banana-leaf green as sashing in between and all around . . .
Next, framed it up with a 2.5" marbled dark blue fabric. And finally was strips and strips of 2" colorful fabric I had in my scrap basket. It brought out all the bright colors of the animals.
