Another baby quilt



I spent some of the weekend working on both the One Million Books quilt (all titles now are written on the border strips) and cutting out a new Kaffe Fassett African stripe baby quilt.



Baby jungle animals for the back, polka dots for the border, and plaid fabric for the bias tape. I'm chain piecing and have about three rows completed. More pictures soon. I've posted about making this quilt pattern before. These are the posts on chain piecing, adding borders, pin basting, quilting, and adding bias binding.

Adorable! Used the same green with blue dots in a jungle themed baby quilt and again in a Christmas tree quilt. I love those colors. Can't wait to see how your's turns out!

Thanks, Chris. This design never gets old for me. There are so many great new striped fabrics now, too.
All the best,
Dana

Your baby quilts are so cute Dana! I think I like the colors in this one even more!!

Me, too, Mary. I get a little bored with pink and blue.
Still lots of snow up your way?
Kind regards,
Dana

very nice baby quilt! much more interesting than the usual pink or blue. I especially love the sweet critters on your backing fabric.

Thanks, Cat,
The backing fabric was the inspiration for the colors. After the bento box baby quilts, I was ready to work with some new colors.
All the best,
Dana
