Occasionally a fabric company offers a special challenge to quilters. A few years ago you may remember me posting quilts that were all based on the Broadway show Wicked.
Well, this year Cherrywood fabrics offered another challenge. Quilters were charged with keeping the integrity of the fabric and using it to depict scenes and characters from The Lion King. All I can say is, “Oh my!”
There were 120 quilts in this challenge. A few were designated as Disney Favorites. These quilts will eventually be on display at the Minskoff Theatre in New York where The Lion King is playing.
Here you can see the display.
Here is a quilt featuring Rafiki.
There were several lions.
How about one of Zazu?
This one touched me.
You can see the waste the Shadowlands had become reflected in the eye.
Not the best picture, but what is The Lion King without the Circle of Life?
A few more I thought were interesting.
Long live Simba, The Lion King.
Just want to let you all know that I will not be posting for the next several weeks. I am taking some time off. Will be back toward the end of May.
