Baby Jungle Quilt is a UFO No More

Crossing off another UFO. Yay! Now that my cross stitch project is finished I can turn my attention to some of these projects that have been languishing in boxes for far too long. I don't even remember when I started this quilt. I'm thinking early last year, or it's entirely possible that it was 2010. I'm much better now at recording the details. All it lacked was the binding.


 I found the pattern in one of the quilting magazines and I cannot for the life of me find it to give proper credit. I'll keep looking and if someone recognizes it, I would really appreciate if you drop me  a note. It measures 32x36. Smaller than I like, but I love the pattern and will definitely be using it again although I'll make it bigger. If I can find the pattern! :)


 I had Jackie quilt it for me and she quilted a fun aztec-ish pattern in this playful variegated thread. I backed it with a simple blue mottled piece of fabric that I had in my stash.

 Cute jungle print that makes me smile:

 and wish I had used that on the back, but all in all, I really like this little quilt. It's just waiting for a little baby boy.

Hey Ms Karin, who do you send your quilts to for quilting?? I finally got the top done on a UFO and I'm thinking I will send it off to a long arm quilter...

Very cute! The green in the plants really pulls the color in the quilt. Could this be a double bowtie pattern? Glad you were able to cross another UFO off your list!

I love it! The fabrics are just perfect. I also like the quilting - sigh I wish we would have quilt services here in Germany without paying a fortune for it.
