Jungle quilt

I had been given some jungle prints from good friend Elaine quite some time ago.   Elaine and I had met through sewing charity quilts, so I thought it would be appropriate to make a charity kids quilt out of these fabrics.  I decided on a simple nine patch so you get a glimpse of the animals in the jungle and in a days sewing go this far.  I wanted to do a thin outer border of the white polka dots and then attempt a pieced border with the rest of the animal fabric.
I had a date with some local ladies to make kids charity quilts, where I .....
(with their advice).... decided on a simple bright stripe from my stash.
 Then finally stitched the big churn dash blocks together with some sashing from my stash.
Dragged this panel out of my stash, joined it with some blue from Lisa's stash and bordered it with appropriate fabric back out of my stash. Ta da another quilt top born!
 Lisa made this gorgeous quilt top. She is not finished yet, needs borders.
And Chris finished this cute top.
So a productive day was had by all and some stash sharing occurred, which is always fun.
Happy quilting Sue.
