The Green Jungle

Just in time for this month of green, I found an unfinished top and pieces of it on a shelf. About a year ago I had started piecing some animal prints together along with some green fabric. These were all 10 inch squares which I had cut in half horizontally. For some reason they got put back out of sight and were forgotten.

I have been wanting to make a small quilt for Jack’s Basket, a charity which gives baskets to newborn babies with Down Syndrome. The required size is 30 x 36 inches. The strips I had already pieced were close to the correct width. Fortunately I had enough remaining strips to make the 36 inch length.

As you can see, this is just a rough piecing , but I have some good jungle fabric for the backing and hope to get it done soon.

Jack’s Basket is one of the charities selected by Sarah for Hands to Help 2019. Here’s the excerpt from her Confessions of a Fabric Addict blog post.

i’m excited about making a contribution to this fine charity, and I hope some of you will also be interested in taking part in Hands to Help.

  1. I read about Jack’s Basket on Cathy’s blog ( Sane Crazy Crumby Quilting) and thought it was an excellent charity. Good idea to turn your green strips into a little quilt for this charity. Looking good.
