Quilts no longer belong just on the bed as pro-quilter Sally Papin depicts tropical rain forests in her latest series of homemade animal quilt wall art. The focal point of her pieces? A handsome black and white lemur sitting proudly, dangling his striped tail in the likes of a deep green jungle.

Fashioned together with multiple 17 1/2 by 36-inch silk-like panels of fabric, the contrast of the green, tan and brown jewel tones of the background against the proud lemur's white and black body are striking and enchanting to look at. Each colored panel contains a unique pattern of spots, paisleys and swirls that complements the raw edged sewing stitches. A creative alternative to hanging paintings or structural artwork in your home, why not opt for a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted rain forest wall quilt as your next adventurous art purchase?
