Today I found the perfect fabric for our new baby. Jill is decorating with the wild animal print, and I found "Wild Jungle Babies." Are they not adorable? Baby lions, tigers, elephants, giraffes, monkeys and even a baby hippo.
The backing for the quilt, which will be crib size is the tiger print.
Then I found a piece of fabric with the same baby animals all together, and there was just enough to make a couple of pillows.
I found it all at JoAnn's Fabric and since this material is a 2006 pattern it was 40% off. I can't wait to get started. I thought I had some batting, but must have used it, so tomorrow I'll pick up the batting and then get started quilting. I will be hand quilting around the squares and the animals and it should turn out really nice. It's the way I made the quilts for all the other grandchildren.
Will give updates as it comes along!
Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments and stories about when you started blogging and why on yesterday's post.
