Jungle Cruise Baby Quilt
Finished the Jungle Cruise baby quilt for my friend Meghan this weekend, and right on schedule! She ordered it for a friend's baby shower this coming Sunday, and I needed to make sure I allowed for plenty of delivery time to NYC. I'm a little paranoid since the last time I sent her a quilt via Priority Mail, it took almost 2 weeks to get to her and involved angry visits to the post office and eventually chasing down her mailman.
This quilt was a bit of challenge because the couple is waiting to find out the sex of the baby, so I had to make it gender neutral. It's hard enough finding decent boy fabric for quilts, let alone fabric that isn't girly, but not too masculine either. I never realized before how much fabric incorporates flowers somehow....seems there are flowers in EVERYTHING...I think they might be repopulating like Gremlins and attempting to take over.
