I made a similar quilt a while ago and the pictures were actually printed on African placemat fabric. I used the bits of “skin” fabric to make the background nine-patches and each picture was framed with a flange as was the main body of the quilt so as to retain the block alignment. The flange here is inserted on Layer 2 as a motif.

I like the skin borders and flange. They give me a feeling of wild movement in Africa.
