Jungle Song Baby Quilt

I wrote a bit about this quilt yesterday.  The blocks came from a swap; the rules of the swap were 12" finished blocks made from Laurel Burch Jungle Songs with Kona Black background.

We did the swap as soon as the fabric launched.  I'm thinking this was in about 2003 or thereabouts.  As I said, I made two previous baby quilts from the swap yield.  And now this one.  For a great-grand nephew due this spring.

There is one block left.  And still some fabric.  After rethinking, this would not lend itself well to the Emily Cier Irish Chain.  I'm thinking I should find some way to use it soon, though, before it gets buried deep again. Clicking on the photo will make it large enough to appreciate the craftsmanship of some of the blocks.  What a talented swap group!

Hi Nancy...
I think I have some blocks like those too, don't know if it was the same swap or not but I should pull mine out and do something with them too!
You did a good job.....

Wow. This is a departure from what I used to seeing from you, but it is stunning. What a wild and crazy baby quilt -- one that will catch his attention and keep him interested once he starts noticing colors. Quite lovely.

Could you take that lonesome leftover block & use it as the center of a special tote bag?

Ooh, brights with dark backgrounds! You knew I'd like this, didn't you?
