Just one fat quarter

I was still thinking about Jane from Sew Create It's staggered sashing, when I came across this donated fat quarter amongst the Linus fabrics.  

Gorgeous, wacky jungle animals.  I realised that if I cut the pictures into groups of four, I would have twelve little panels.  With a frame round each one, then some staggered sashing, it would make a nice Linus quilt for a small child. 

So, here we are!  I think it's turned out well, despite the fact that I didn't have quite enough fabric for the final border, and had to resort to desperation piecing, 

here, and substitution, 

here.  I think I'll be forgiven by the recipient!

Great idea. Looks like a nice pattern to work up quickly too.
