Rainforest - only 10 years late

I bought the Fall 2002 Quiltmaker magazine with a view to making the quilt on the front cover....

It's foundation pieced and embellished with buttons.  And the cat likes to help with the photography.
Here is a details of the top left corner
Ariel view

It took 10 years to collect all the fabrics for this quilt.  I did make a small part of it in 2002 as a Christening gift, and then borrowed it again for my exhibition in 2003.

I had to decide which blue border to use - the one on the left is the one I chose

a detail of the snake with applique head and tail

Detail of top right.  I am going to hang the quilt at the top of my stairs - it actually only just fits - I didn't measure it, so that was lucky!  But there's still a long way to go before it is hangable.
