    Would you consider this to be Jungle-Theme (WIP)

    Working on a quilt for baby shower for a great niece and they are going "jungle-themed" in the baby's room. Do you this this will be okay. I really don't have any "themed" fabric so I found these blocks I had purchased a while back and used batiks. The second pic is the border I will be adding.
    Would any of you be too disappointed receiving this as a jungle quilt? I've just coming out of a 2 yr slump from sewing and I'm questioning everything I do...

    I think it's fine for a baby. Very nice work.
    I would definitely be happy to get this as a gift.

    No more questioning. This is adorable and fits the jungle theme perfectly. I know I would have lots of fun telling stories to my little about all the cute animals on this fun jungle quilt.

    Thanks everyone. I know most of the items they receive will be "store bought jungle themed" and my colors don't match well, but if the you ladies say *thumbs up*....... then I'll keep sewing on it )

    Definitely keep on sewing! It will stand out from the store-bought stuff, and is easy on the eyes.

    It is perfect for a little one. Everything doesn't have to be matchy-matchy.

    All the more reason to appreciate your gorgeous and unique gift! It won't be like the store bought stuff, but to my mind that is a huge plus.

    I love it and I think it's perfect. Don't feel alone in this. When I'm making a quilt for someone specific, I always question whether the recipient is going to like what I did or not.

    No more second guessing yourself. Your gift is terrific and very personal.

    That quilt is a special original. Much, much better than "canned" products, which I use.

    Actually, I think your colors will match better than you think. If anyone is not thrilled, send it my way. I think it is too cute. I am pretty sure it will be the hit of the party
