Finished lions and tigers and bears!
I can't believe how quickly this quilt has come together, but I'm so so happy with the result!
It's kind of a mish mosh of fabrics from Joann's with some solid Kona fabric for the backing and sashing. I found the green jungle print first and then just found some bright greens, oranges, yellows and blues to make up the rest of the blocks.
I can't wait for baby to get here so he/she can enjoy their jungle quilt!
Here's a pic of the back, I used some yellow and turquoise solids and then pieced a row of the focus fabric from the front with smaller pieces of the other fabrics from the front.
There's nothing I love more than a pieced quilt back! I think it just makes the whole quilt.
Here's more of a close up of the back that shows off the quilting a little better. I used my good ole faithful stippling/meandering. Everytime I think I'm going to veer away and try something new, I come back to it, but always love love the result.
Now I must stash this quilt away and wait for the little one to arrive! Next up is yet another baby quilt, but this time I have flying geese stuck in my head, nice and simple a la this only with some more super fabulous jungle prints I found on fabric.com...stay tuned!
