I have been doing some more secret sewing for my friends at Moda Fabrics and am excited to share another project I got to work on for them ;) And I had so much fun with the sample, I made 2 more!!! Let's start with the sample . . . I was thrilled when I opened my box from Moda to find an adorable Jungle Paradise Fat Quarter Bundle!! This is a new line by Stacy Iest Hsu that releases in August. It has monkeys, tigers, elephants, and frogs in bright happy colors. And so what better pattern to make with these awesome prints than Wendy Shepherd's Stomping Ground.
This quilt was so much fun to piece!!! It really went together fast, like 2 days fast :) I just loved sewing with these fabrics. They are just so happy and bright and you can't help but smile while making cute little elephants!
And I love that the Stomping Ground pattern has the option to make a few elephants facing the other direction. You don't have to do that, but it adds a fun little movement to it, it just meant I had to piece those two elephants separately from the others so I could mirror all of the piecing ;)
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided on my favorite go to all over swirl. I just love the texture it adds to the quilt, and it is so relaxing to quilt. My favorite 402 So Fine blended perfectly into the background and still blended on all of those bright prints. I just love 402!!!
You only need 10 Fat Quarters, some background and binding to make this Stomping Ground quilt. It finishes at 48" x 60". And if you want to make one to, without having a leftover 20 Fat Quarters from the bundle, Fat Quarter Shop has a Kit already listed for it. Again, it won't be available until August, but you can add your email to be notified when it is available. And it just makes the cutest baby quilt!!
