TGIFF - The Jungle Quilt

Today is my day to share for TGIFF (Thank goodness it's finished Friday).  This quilt is one that I started sometime ago. 

My daughter pieced it and then I quilted it.   The quilting was quite simple, I stitched in the ditch around the squares, and then I did a free motion leaf design on the borders.

 I used warm and natural batting, front and back are both flannel.  I used my Lily 550 from Viking to do the quilting.    I used glide thread for the quilting in a warm grey. 

My daughter in law requested a jungle theme, so I hope she will like this for my grandson.  There is another one in the works, that I hope to have ready for Christmas.

The binding still needs stitched down, but all my evenings after work have been spent putting a basement back together after a sewage flood.  This quilt will be ready for gifting to my newest grandson on Sunday. 

What have you finished this week?  Link up and share with us, please.


  1. Very cute baby quilt. Very appropriate for a quilt that will be used a lot. Happy stitching!

  2. What a sweet little jungle quilt! I'm sure your grandson will love it for years to come :) I hope you get your basement cleaned up soon!

  3. There is something satisfying about finishing a quilt, especially after it has sat unfinished for a while! It looks so snuggly warm!

  4. That is adorable !
    Sorry you had to spend evenings cleaning up - I think sewing is much more fun!

  5. Super cute - and sure to be loved by him, with its happy characters and its soft flannel. :) The leaves in the border were the perfect choice.
