Teal grunge dinosaur quilt


whelp. it has been FAR too long since i last posted here, and i have a lot of catching up to do!
2020 was a lot of changes, but i left my teaching job after playing the waiting game and now work FULL TIME at a local quilt shop, which means i get to make shop samples :slight_smile:
the first one up that wasn’t a holiday one was one i have been dying to do for myself, and it is the elizabeth hartman dinosaurs quilt. my boss asked me to make a shop sample, which is leading to making kits as well, so i pulled some of my most favorite grunge in my favorite colors and created this little beauty. we also have qnique 21 long arms at the shop, so i was able to quilt it with the perfect pantograph to coordinate. i love this sooooo much, and i will absolutely be making it larger for myself!!
i pieced my backing using the star version of one of the greens used in the plants combined with scraps from the fat quarters that i didn’t use.

What a dream job!! That’s so neat you get to do the samples too! Do you get to keep it after it’s no longer displayed or does it belong to the store?

I think you might have just found the job of your life! What a fabulous looking and fun quilt! Love what you did to the back as well…both sides can be displayed or used!

Great quilt! I used to work at a fabric store, and we got to keep projects we made for display. But stores vary.
