Scoot down a Jungle Path - a Friday Finish

Yippee!  A finish to share!

Remember these?

Scoot WIP

I know you thought that was going to be one yellow quilt!  Well, they turned into this:

Jungle Path, a baby boy quilt

I used a free pattern on the Moda Bakeshop website called Jungle Path by Jessica Kelly at Sew Crafty Jess.  The fabric is "Scoot" by Riley Blake.

These blocks came together pretty quickly and I even with my directional fabrics, I only had to unpick one seam and turn it.  The only trouble came when deciding how to quilt it.

I stitched in the ditch all the seams, and nearly left it at that.  I loved how those little center squares puffed up and felt so soft.  But, I felt obligated to do some additional quilting.  I ended up with wavy lines in the colored sections of the outer squares and some of that right angle square stippling in the yellow sashing areas.  Then I left the center squares untouched.  Here is a close up.

I just love those center squares popping up.

And of course, the obligatory back shot:

I had all that yellow to work with for the front, and I like how it kept things nice and soft looking.  For the back though, I knew I was going to be using those off white prints, and in big chucks, so I felt like it could handle a little punch of brighter color.  I just made up some HST's to create the chevrons and added some additional solids where I was short on yardage of the white prints.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I'm even happier to say, other than a few random charms squares and some small strips, I used all the fabric I had in this line.  Poof!  Gone!  (Room for new fabric, right?)

I will be labeling this one up next week.  The baby shower is on the 20th, and I hope the mama likes it.

Thanks for reading today,

Jen

  4. I would still say it's one yellow quilt - but then I wouldn't see being yellow as somethign negative. This will make someone very happy.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
