Jungle Path baby quilt

I finally finished hand sewing the binding on this quilt last week! Talk about procrastination on my part.... It sat in a bag next to my lazy-z-boy chair in the front room patiently waiting to be worked on for several weeks.

This was a fun quilt to make! And was all done with stash fabrics. I had a charm pack and coordinating jelly roll that have been waiting for the perfect use and this was it a beautiful baby girl quilt.

I used a pattern from Moda Bakeshop called Jungle Path I changed up the backing and used Moda BLISS fabric.

This quilt goes along with the baby bibs, burp pads and onesies I posted about here. They all use coordinating fabrics from the Moda Bliss line.

For the quilting I quilted the center and white part of each square with a quilting design on my embroidery machine. It was the first time I have used the embroidery machine for quilting. I also quilted done the sashing in the center and in the ditch on each side. It made for a lovely grid pattern.

I embroidered a label which I appliqu├ęd to the back lower right corner. This is a gift for the baby shower and the name has not yet been picked.... I'm contemplating making a new label after the baby is born. I'll see what the mama wants to about it after I give it to her.

This was a fun project. Moda Bakeshop has so many great ideas posted by some fabulous quilters.
