Jungle Village


I am still quilting away on the jungle village. Today I worked more on the trees. I am echo quilting around them very loosely. Because they are so uneven on each side I have to kind of wing it. It's a good thing the quilt is wonky because the quilting is VERY wonky. I have the trees that have yellow or pink backgrounds to do yet and one or two with dark backgrounds. I am not sure how I will go about quilitng the pink border. It would look nice with fans but I'm not sure about doing them with FMQ. I may also echo the colored triangles. I am pretty sure I will do echo quilting on the snakes, which leaves the narrow orange border to think about. The fun thing about quilitng this one is that every block is different so there is no chance of getting bored. I do end up with a sore neck and back if I get so focused that I lose track of time and stay at it too long.

I just love the Jungle Village, great colors, fabric, and the wonky shape.

I too get a sore neck and back when I hand stitch.

its looking great. It sounds like you're having fun with the quilting if you can get "lost" in it long enough to get stiff :-)

the quilting is coming along nicely. I too can only quilt for only a certain length of time before the aches and pains begin.

I get lost if I am hand quilting. I can sit there for hours! That quilting is certainly not wonky. You should see mine LOL.

I love scrap quilts and this one is for sure one. The wonky houses, the wonky trees and the lovely quilting look great.

Sounds like this is a great project for you to experiment on with the quilting. Wonky fits the fun style of the piecing.
