Born to be Wild

 When Carol announced this blog hop it was like it was meant to be.  When a new baby is expected in our school the faculty fund gets them a gift.  This year I finally felt confident enough in my machine quilting to make the gifts for new babies and we ended up having 4 new babies expected.  I had just completed twin jungle themed quilts for one of our learning support teacher.  She had chosen a jungle theme for the nursery but wasn't sure the gender of one of the twins when I started working on them so I chose to use shades of green.  

I wanted similar designs but not identical so I used 2 of Creatin' in the sticks' blocks from 30 blocks in 30 days and the same fabrics.  One is backed in the leaves and the other in the animal print.  





There is nothing jungle like where we live, but on a trip to Virginia we were able to go to the zoo and snap a couple pictures!  We gave the mom to be her quilts just in time, the very next day she was put on bed rest.

  5. Your twin quilts are so cute and the backdrop for photos was definitely in the "wild" category. I love the green quilts, and those animals in the background! Carla's blocks are just the best thing to make quilts. Thank you for sharing!
