The Panda Quilt: theme-y without being too theme-y

My cousin graduated from high school last year, and my aunt ordered a couple quilts for her son’s friends.  My inspiration for this quilt was that the graduate loves panda bears.  Okay, fun challenge– how can I make a quilt that matches my aesthetic without being too theme-y?

I found a panda and a bamboo fabric, and I added some solids, as I love to do in every quilt.  Then I threw in a few prints to add some texture.  And then I started chopping up the fabric.  This is what came out on the other side, after some mouse-maze quilting.  So there you have it.  The panda quilt.
