In the Jungle..the mighty jungle..

...the lion sleeps tonight..in the jungle the mighty jungle the lions sleeps tonight................aweeeeeee 

Yeah, I know you know that song, and I bet your singing along right now, he he he.  Well that's what I decided to name this little disappearing four patch baby quilt, "In the Jungle"

It's finally finished!  I started this little disappearing four patch baby quilt way back in April.  I started quilting it last month and now its finally done.  It was hard coming up with a name for this quilt, its usually the part of making a quilt that keeps my mind occupied even as I am busy quilting it, it even and keeps me up at night, he he.  But when looking at the fabrics, the name of the fabric line (Bungle Jungle by Tim and Beck for Moda) I knew it would work well.


I wanted to keep the quilting simple, but I wanted to add just a bit of 'flare' in the white inside border.  I cant remember where I've seen this free motion quilting design before, but I as I was playing around on a practice sandwich I just knew it would work great.  I like how it separates the wiggly motion of the stippling and the loops I've quilted inside the outer border.



There is always that little something that I think I could have done differently or wish to change.  This time its the binding.  I don't think the blue dotted fabric works well with the rest of the quilt, maybe I should have used a bright red or even yellow.  I suppose I could still change it, but for now this is my finish, and I am happy that its done...


I could not resist taking this picture, although it is from a far distance, I think it looks too cute with Kayleigh and our BIG dog, (boerbull) Max


If you'd like to read up more about this baby quilt, you can find it herehere and here.  I even have a step by step tutorial to make the disappearing four patch block, you can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by...

This is just perfect. I really like the square quilting and the blue binding is a nice finish. It doesn't take away from the centre ; )

I like the way you have a few of the animals peeking out of the squares. Very cute. And the FMQing adds to the project. Great job! Glad I came by.
