"Stones and Skins", my version.

This is the WIP right now. It's destined to be a wedding quilt for the son of a friend. The pattern is "Stones and Skins" by Sue Harvey and Sandy Boobar of pinetreecountryquilts.com. I used the Stonehenge line of fabrics by Northcott, but substituted the zebra/leopard/snakeskin prints because they just aren't available here yet. The pattern is in the April/May edition of "The Quilter Magazine."
I added an extra row of blocks width wise so it becomes a square quilt to fit a queen size with lots of drop down both sides. That way, no one gets a draft when there's two bodies in the bed ! :)
The top is done now, so soon the quilting will begin. So far, my friend loves it.
