March finish - scraping in again!

Hi all

My finish for March is a quilt for my daughter who lives in NZ so it will probably stay here in the UK until she comes to visit/or maybe comes home! She is 24 but loves quirky animal fabric.  I originally saw the pattern on the Missouri Star Quilt Company Youtube tutorials and I have adjusted it to the size I wanted.  I think the stack and whack is widely available pattern?   I have been catching up on the posts and what an amazing batch of finishes - again!
This is the front
 
the back
 
and a few other views.  The photo does not show how bright the animal fabric is against the white


I hope everyone has managed to find some sewing time over the Easter break - I have managed to finish this quilt and catch up on blogs - perfect day so far.

I like the half blocks on the bottom of the front. I really like the back though. I love a bit of quirky on quilt backs. It's a nice surprise when you flip it over. Plus, a pieced back is a great way to use up some of the left over fabric from the front.

LOVE the back! The front is wonderful too. It always amazes me how a stack n whack turns out. Beautiful job!
