Into the Wild

Combine African-theme prints and bright batiks in a quilted throw. Solid black sashing creates crisp lines and makes the savanna scenes in the center of the quilt come to life. Fabrics are from the Tonga Citrus Mint collection by Judy and Judel Niemeyer and the African Sunset collection, both from Timeless Treasures Fabrics.
