Zebra Tapestry Fabric

I was at Joanne's Fabric store yesterday afternoon and I bought 8 yards of this zebra tapestry fabric.
 It was on the flat fold table and was $6.00/yd.  They had 50% off that table, so it was reduced to $3/yd.  Then I used my 20% off  card they sent me, which was going to expire on Friday.  So I paid less than $2.50/yd!  What a bargain!

This morning I started cutting and sewing.  I did not realize what a mess tapestry fabric is--threads everywhere--I had to use some sticky lint remover sheets to get it off the carpet.  By the way, that's a good tip--if you have tons of threads on the floor and don't want them to get tangled in your vacuum cleaner, lint remover sheets work great to get the majority off the floor.

After about 4 hours, I had my project done. Any idea what I might be making?  Did you notice that plate up toward the top of the first photo?  That zebra plate is the reason I bought this fabric.

You can see what I did with it by clicking here to get to my tablescape blog.

What a fun project day I had! This entire project took less time than making one of the paper-pieced snowman blocks!
