Jungle quilt

My little guy is turning 3 next month! He's not a baby anymore. *Sniff*. If I accidentally call him baby he says, "Me no baby, me Deaf (Seth)!" I want to make him something for his birthday present. I always want to make something, right. Well, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away (Ok, ok, it was almost 2 years ago!) I bought a book where the story follows along with the animals on the quilt.


It's quite adorable. I thought of making it for his 2nd birthday... obviously that didn't happen. It was too cute to make for someone else so I saved it. If I don't make it soon he'll be to old for it. This will be perfect for his 3rd birthday I think.

I pulled out my batik bins and began searching for the right fabrics.


I love using my stash. The only one that I don't have in batik is a black and white for the zebra. Totally sucks but I do have something that will suffice. I think what I have pulled together will work pretty well. I can't decide which frame, sashing, and border combo to use. With all the busy colors for the different animals it's hard for me to choose.


Do you like the ones on the left or the ones on the right? Dan likes the ones on the right but for some reason I like the ones on the left... Help. What do you think?

I don't know... I actually like them both.

BTW, what did you use the dragonfly fabric for before?

That isn't helpful.

I think I used it on Christine's baby quilt.

I vote for the one on the left...
Can't wait to see the finished product!

I like the ones on the left, I think they will all stand out and work together well some of the ones on the right would stand out and not mesh at all. - It's just what I was thinking.
