Finished - Jungle Baby Quilt

This cute little baby quilt was just delivered to a very sweet, very special baby boy in North Carolina.
I knew the nursery theme was jungle animals so I set off to make something fun and colorful.

It started with this panel I found at the Fabric Depot in Oregon.

Simple squares with smaller animal print frames should give the little guy lots to look at during tummy time!

The quilting is a edge to edge figure 8 (sort of). And, yes, I realize that the main fabric (Doodle Zoo by Taylor Rae Studio) includes some animals that you might not find in the  African jungle.  Oops.
Welcome Selasi!  Until I can hug you in person, this quilt will have to do!

Linking up with AmandaJean's finish it up friday event!


  1. Oh Kathy I'm so inspired by your use of a panel! This quilt will be cherished!

  2. This is absolutely darling! And I think it is perfectly okay if the jungle animals have friends come visit.

  3. So very, very cute! He'll love it for sure.

  4. Love your figure 8 quilting. I need to learn to do that.

  5. Adorable!!! What a fun way to use a novelty print and the panel on the back is perfect:-)

  6. This is just darling and so unique! A fun collection of animals joined to welcome the precious little one into the world. I'm just finishing up my first ever start to finish (including FMQ) quilt for my grandson who will be 1 at the end of the month. It too is a jungle theme - grey/red & white & black.

  7. Cute! Great idea to use novelty fabrics!

  8. Very nicely done - I like the way that both sides are equally interesting to look at!


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
