This is the FOURTH quilt I have made using the Jungle Babies fabric! The first one I made was for my oldest grandson over 11 years ago! I picked up pieces of the fabric when I would see it in a store over the years. I may be able to make one more scrappy one from the leftovers! The date on the selvedge is 2006.
You can see the other 3 quilts I made from this fabric HERE, HERE and HERE.
Here are some pictures. It was a rainy day, so I only have indoor pictures!

Very interesting! Now I can figure out how long it would take me to make a simple baby quilt, while fitting the work into small blocks of time before and after work and on the weekends or other days off work.
If I could do one hour a day, I should be able to finish a simple baby quilt in 9 to 10 days. We will see if I can make that work!
