    welcome to my jungle- new quilt top

    my mother's husband happened to post on my facebook that i was the 'Tarzan' of quilters
    so, i figured it must be time to make a jungle quilt- i've had 3 or 4 different 'wild life-jungle critters' panals on the closet shelf for years- finally decided to grab one- grab a bunch of scraps & see what i could come up with-
    of course it still needs to be quilted & bound- but the top is done & turned out pretty good-
    clicking on the picture makes it larger- show up the border- seems to be cut off in the posted pic---

    I like it! 'Specially the braided border...if that's what you "whip up from scraps" I'd like to see what you get when you plan for a month!!

    This is terrific! Great center panel, and your blocks, etc. around it are neat!

    thank you- but i'm not always so 'prolific' sometimes they just---come together quickly & easily---sometimes i have a real problem getting any done- and i do still have a couple 'years old' UFO's that i just can not seem to get to come together.
    i love it when they are 'flowing'
    last year was a very difficult year in my life & i was not very productive- this year seems to be much better & so far it's been fun to take out an arm load of fabrics from the shelves & just start piecing- and have quilts come out of it all
    thanks for all the compliments- i have a couple more panals maybe i will do something with...we shall see if i remain 'prolific' when i get back from vacation---

    It's gorgeous! I really like the mix of blocks and patterns. I love looking at quilts on my IPad, I can zoom in and really see the details and colors! Excellent job!

    You are sew creative. And your work is always beautiful. Love your side panels. They look like mountains, keeping your animals enclosed in their little jungle.

    Love the panel. What is the name of it? I love how you framed it!
