Friday Finish - Welcome to the Jungle

I finished up this quilt for Margaret's Hope Chest. Carin had graciously participated in our Blogger BOM and was the guinea pig for the first month. She put out a call for these "Fun In The Middle" blocks and had enough to make 10 quilt tops. She decided to complete the quilts for orphans in Guatamala. She needed volunteers to make 10 quilts more and I offered to do one. These blocks come together super fast and are a great way to show off fussy cuts of novelty fabrics. Carin's tutorial for the block can be found here

I have been torn for the name of this quilt. Animal Crackers, Welcome to the Jungle, At the Zoo. I can't decide and it has been brought to my attention that not all these blocks feature animals (No robots in the zoo).

 A close up of some of the blocks.....

Stripey binding from "Traveling Stash" box and super soft flannel backing that makes me think of a soft yellow ducky.

Very happy with how the quilt turned out. It is my third finish of the year on the way to 13 in 2013.

Also the winner of the Blogger BOM prize pack this month is Amy of Amy's Crafty Shenanigans is the winner. She will be getting a fat quarter of each fabric below and the pattern.

  4. Well, if the Robot was a vending machine then it could be at the zoo. LOL Great work.

  5. Are their robots in the jungle? Seriously -- I like "at the zoo" and I wouldn't stress too much about whether or not the name fits perfectly.
