I think I'll call this Jungle Neighborhood. My grandson is turning 4 this week, and this quilt is for his "bigboy" bed. He likes mazes, so I came up with this design where he can follow the orange path through the jungle and visit all the animal "neighbors".

I had fun doing the FMQ on this, although after doing the bricks in the path, it sat on my table for almost 2 weeks while I contemplated how to quilt the rest of it.

What do you all think?

I think I will be shocked if your grandson doesn't totally love it!

It is so bright and fun and the layout reminds me of a maze in a video game so it is sure to be appealing to him on so many levels. He could even play with toy cars on it going to visit all the different families in the quilt!
