Jungle Bungle Baby Quilt by Msminnesota




My friend Nichole was pregnant with their 3rd child and I knew I wanted to make her a quilt, but they decided to be surprised with the gender.  I didn't want to make a gender neutral quilt, so I decided to wait it out with everyone else.  A baby boy was born late at night on August 16, and on August 17 I went on the hunt for fabric.  Actually, I knew what I was going to use for 'boy' fabric - Bungle Jungle that had recently been released.  What I needed was a pattern for a quilt that would come together quickly, and I found it in a tutorial at Cluck Cluck Sew - The Road Trip Quilt.  I went shopping for the fabric on Saturday, Aug 18, returned home at 2:00 p.m. with the goods, and immediately went to work.  By 7:30 p.m. I had a finished top (well, almost...I had 2 extra rows already sewn together, but I wasn't sure if I had enough binding if I added the extras).  I had a date on the calendar for long arm machine rental for August 25, so I used the compuquilter to add the jungle animal quilting.  Sunday evening I finished it all up with the binding.  This is the quickest I've EVER done a quilt!  Seriously!  The first quilt I ever made I started probably 10 years ago and just put the binding on this year!  :) 

We delivered the quilt last week and it's being loved on daily!  I'm so proud of this little quilt, and I know the new owner loves it!






What a great quilt...love the quilting and boy you are fast! Love the fabric as well and what a lovely gift.


SO darling! This fabric is perfect for a little boy. I am so jealous that you are able to rent long arm time. I wish my LQS would do that. Did you make a label too? Now that you know you can whip out quilts that fast you have a new standard to hold to. Oh the pressure!


Very cute and bright!!


Thanks ladies! Terry - I have pre-printed labels, so I added that as well, but I don't think I have a picture of it. And, it likely would have cost me less to have the long arm quilt lady do this because I had 2 quilts on 2 machines going at the same time, and the passes were pretty quick, so it was taking me more time to move between machines and advance them, etc. Anyway, it is a great option, that's for sure (esp for larger quilts).


Hey, my daughter Siffstitch and I were fabric shopping today and she bought that exact same blue with the white squiggles!


Yeah, the blue fabric IS nice. :)

I really like the way you have animals stitched into the quilt. And the green back looks soooo soft!


So fast!!! Very impressive.


I've since made two more of these for twin girls.
I forgot to blog about them, but the pictures are here:


Baby Peyton and Baby Audrey - I appliqued a P to one and an A to the other. Peyton's is bound in a dark pink with a light pink minky back, and Audreys is bound in light pink with a dark pink minky back. They were a big hit!
