I had two quilts roughly the same size. One was a jungle animal theme that came with his bedding set. I still really love it and all the animals. The other quilt was one that I made Henry. It’s a simple tied quilt with an adorable lion print. I cut the lion quilt into four pieces and sewed them around the jungle quilt. I didn’t unpick anything and didn’t even take out the ties. (I know, all you quilters out there are cringing because I took major shortcuts and did it unconventionally.) When I laid out the quilt to get a picture, Henry wanted to cuddle on it. At least it shows you the size ratio!
I got the minky fabric at a Joann’s Black Friday sale. 50% off is the only way I’d buy this fabric, and it still seemed too expensive to me. I used the minky as the back and did some machine quilting around the animals, so there’s a cool pattern. Since I used other quilts, I didn’t have to worry about sewing through all the batting because it had already been done! Then I used the minky to self-bind the edges which I sewed with a machine because I hate hand-stitching.
