Life in the Jungle quilt

I have a friend that asked me to make a baby quilt for a little boy. I had total creative license and chose Riley Blake's Life in the Jungle line. It also had a panel to make a little book too... so cute.

I made a crazy quilt, which is just 6 fat quarters and a yard of sashing. I went with 4" wide sash cuts. I wasn't sure about the grey, but I absolutely love how sweet this quilt is looking! I have some aqua voile in my stash I am thinking of using to back the quilt, but I'm worried it will be flimsy. Has anyone ever backed a quilt with voile?

Here is a close up of one of the blocks with sashing. I love the cute little animals and bright colors!


  1. Lovely quilt. Great colours. Well done.

  2. Adorable.. I love the fabric you chose.. You are such a
    sweet friend, to make this lovely quilt.. I know she
    appreciates it.
    I have never lined a quilt with voile, So I really
    don't know?? But, I wonder with it being a baby's quilt
    and having to be laundered so often, how it would hold
    up? But , I bet it would be soft and nice?

  3. You are soooo talented, my friend!

  4. Awesome!!!!! You are soooo talented, my friend!
