    I just finished this set for a friend's grandchild, expected in Australia in August.
    The Mom loves the jungle animals, and has a sage green decor in the nursery. I improvised, and sketched my animals freehand, and went from there and appliqued my animals to the blocks. Since my planning stages were skewed, it got bigger than I anticipated when I stripped it and did my borders.
    I did the small wall hanging to match, for over the crib if she chooses.

    Grreat!! I have used coloring books for patterns, since I am not artistic as far as drawing. My mind thinks I am though. Somehow something happens between the brain and the fingers to mess things up.

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I was a bit leery of the darker colors, but those were what the new mother asked for.
    It was not what I would have chosen for a new baby, but then, I haven't had a new baby in 38 years.
