Here is a Tiger Quilt I made and donated to our local Booster Club. I found the pattern in the Sept/Oct Fons and Porter Magazine. It was rated challenging, and yes, it was!
I love your quilt! Love the color choices and the fussy cut tigers. It does look like a hard one to piece, but you did an excellent job. I have several "tiger themed" things. When I was very small, my Mom would read to me at night. One of her favorite poems to read (and mine too!) was The Tyger by William Blake. (First stanza)
Tyger Tyger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
That turned out really well. Great job!!!!!
Take time for kindness & for giving. Take time for friends & happy living!
Don't generally care for animal quilts, but love yours! Great use of color and theme fabric!
Sew, sew, and sew some more that's my motto!
I does look challenging, but beautiful! Nice job!
Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
Living in the land of LSU, I've seen more tigers on quilts than I can remember, but this one is awesome. You did a super job and it should raise quite a bit of moolah!

Great fabrics for those tiger stripes. What a terrific donation quilt. Whoever ends up with this one will love it.
Very pretty! You did a great job on it!!
LOVE it! It reminds me of a UFO I have that is Pandas....

That is wonderful.
I also don't care for animal prints but I didn't even realize that it was an animal print.
Beautiful fabric and quilt!

BLESSED WITH THE BEST !!!!

Simply stunning workmanship and colors!! I am in awe of your perfect points.
This quilt is made with 2 blocks. The Tiger block, and the one with the white tiger print "cross". The one with the cross was supposed to be pieced using templates. I DON'T do templates, so I figured out how to paper piece the block. I took a class using the Judy Niemeyer technique several months ago, and this really helped me figure out how to do it.
I had a heck of a time finding white "Tiger" fabric. I don't know how many different prints I bought before I found this one. My local store now has a whole bolt of it since I begged her to buy it!
Maybe the non-winners will ask for the fabric to make their "copy".
Great job Karen, & it should raise lots of moola!
