"Jungle Babies" cotton fabric, backing and cotton batting
What was your inspiration?
I love the "Jungle Babies' juvenile fabric found awt Joann's. It was designed by Patty Reed Designs for Fabric Traditions, , N.T.T., Inc. There are many prints to choose from all in the same design set. One is the one I fussy cut the 'picture' block centers from; one is an overall jungle babies print I used in the border, one is another overall print used for the backing. There is also several other prints in this collection, including some flannel prints which I used in a rag quilt.
What are you most proud of?
I like the little quilt. It is 37 x 45" and is edged in prairie points which I think 'sets off' the quilt. I made sheets and pillowcase to match the quilt (unfortunately did not photograph them before sending them to the person they were made for). The sheets and pillowcase are in the olive green cotton and the top sheet and pillow case have the praire points as trim on the border of the top sheet and pillow case. It is a darling ensemble.
