Dino-tastic TGIFF!

Happy Friday and welcome to TGIFF @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge! If you're new to the blog, I hope you'll take a few minutes to look around.
This week's finish has been hanging out in the Quilting Protection Program for some time under the name of Project #2. My fingers are crossed that I can get these delivered to a certain dino-lovin' gal before she sees this post. She's not a quilter so I'm likely safe!

When I saw Lizzie House's Natural History, I was smitten indeed. And I knew that the above mentioned gal would love, love, love these blue and purple dinosaurs.
I wanted to use the Dino Exhibit print on the back to get maximum dinosaur impact,  but I ran short and had to use some Twinkle Twinkle and some Kona Midnight.
They're made using the Jaybird Quilt Jaw Breaker pattern. I so enjoyed making the Christmas version last year that I just had to make them again. (And I've got a major WIP on the go using a similar method... but that's for another day!)
