Let's Bee Social #105

The Jungle Friends blocks were all completed when I made my report for the Let's Bee Social last week. Then they were all sashed and borders were added. The Baby sized quilt was easily basted and quilted up here at home. But the Full sized quilt finishes at approximately 72" x 96", so I hauled that one and the backing and batting down to church on Saturday and made use of their great big tables in the basement. Here is a photo of it draped across a twin bed before quilting.

As you can see by my post on Instagram, Monday was spent quilting that big version up.....

  1. Love those jungle friends! just as much as the elephants on parade!

  2. It looks great on the bed!!! Happy New Year with a lot of new, happy quilts!!!

  3. Super with all the animals, and what a great idea to move to where there are huge tables for basting. Wavy lines, they suit it so well.

  4. Thanks for hosting this fun linky each week... love your quilt too! :) Kathi

  5. Such a gorgeous quilt. There's going to be some jungle fever coming up when the patterns are released! Great to link up again - it's been a month since I posted!!

  6. Love your Jungle Friends Quilt and the background fabric you used for all those wonderful blocks. Great job quilting.

  7. I love this quilt! I owe someone a baby quilt and just might have to put this on my quilty list for next year. Lorna, I don't know how you come up with all these cute little critters, but I'm sure looking forward to whatever you come up with next.

  8. OMGGGGG I can't wait!!!! I'll be one of your first buyers!! Can't wait! (Oh I already said that...LOL!!)

  9. Wow I had no idea this quilt was so big. What a fun quilt for a little kid!

  10. Happy New Year Lorna!! Bring on 2016! Big quilts can be so crazy to quilt! Muscles and determination...Love it!

  11. I know larger quilts are quite practical, and i love them, but oh how heavy they are! And so much quilting to be done on them - OY! That said, your jungle animal is sure to be an extreme hit and is worth the shoulder ache, methinks. Cheers for finishing the year with a BANG!

  12. Jungle Friends looks fantastic Lorna! It makes a really great twin bedspread as well. Queen sized quilts are a challenge to baste and quilt, that's for sure. Happy New Year Lorna!

  13. Well I must say that I really love all of your little animal friends! All these designs are so much fun, Lorna. Happy New Year!

  14. Your jungle friends quilt is looking great! Looking forward to seeing what you make in 2016.

  15. Your organic wavy lines are so smooth. As hard as I try I cannot get mine that smooth. Probably because I have a cheap Singer machine. Could be the quilter too. LOL


  16. Your jungle quilt is sew cute!! I just want you to know I always look at your blog and love seeing what you do Lorna, I just don't always comment(shame on me). When you stitch your organic wavy lines how far apart do you strive for? It always looks so wonderful :-)

  17. What a cute quilt! Finding a space to baste a large quilt is always such a challenge, you're lucky to be able to go to your church to baste.

  18. Der Quilt ist dir super gut gelungen! Es bereitet gute Laune ihn anzuschauen!
    Ein gutes neues Jahr wünsche ich Dir.
    Liebe Grüße


Your kind comments certainly make my day!
