Jungle Path Baby Quilt

DSC_0015

Hello everyone!  My name is Jessica and I blog at SewCraftyJess.  I am so excited to share my very first Moda Bake Shop tutorial with you today.  It seems I am often needing to make baby quilts for different friends and families new additions, so I am always on the lookout for adorable kiddo fabrics.  When I came across Bungle Jungle by Tim and Beck,  I just had to put together a baby quilt showcasing all of the adorable prints in such fun colors, and I'm excited to share it with you today!


One Charm Pack: Tim & Beck Bungle Jungle
One Jelly Roll: Tim & Beck Bungle Jungle
1 1/2 Yard Bella Solid in White


Cutting:

1.  From white solid:
Cut (22) 1.5" x WOF strips
  • Subcut (4) 1.5" strips into (32) 4" x 1.5" pieces
  • Subcut (6) 1.5" strips into (32) 6" x 1.5" pieces
  • Subcut (2) 1.5" strips into (16) 5" x 1.5" pieces
  • Subcut (3) 1.5" strips into (12) 10" x 1.5" pieces
  • Subcut (5) 1.5" strips into (5) 41 1/2" x 1.5" pieces
  • Subcut (2) 1.5" strips into (2) 43 1/2" x 1.5" pieces
Cut (3) 3.5" x WOF strips for quilt back

2.  Choose 16 charms to be the centers of each block and trim to 4" square

3.  Pair each of your trimmed charms with 5" charm and matching jelly roll strip (5" charm and jelly roll strip should match)


4.  From each jelly roll strip, cut (2) 10" strips from the selvedge edges.  We will be using the remaining ~20" of jelly roll strip for the binding, set aside.

Quilt Top Assembly

Use 1/4" seam throughout and press all seams open

1.  Sew (2) 4" white strips onto opposite sides of your 4" center square


2.  Sew (2) 6" white strips onto remaining 2 sides of center square


3.  Sew (1) 5" white strip onto one edge of the coordinating charm you selected


4.  Cut your charm/white strip piece in half lengthwise, resulting in (2) strips measuring 6" x 2.5"


5.  Take your center square bordered in white and sew (2) matching 6" x 2.5" pieced strips from step 4 onto opposite sides, taking care to align the white portion of the strip to the left on one edge and to the right on the other.


6.  Sew (2) matching 10" jelly roll strips on to remaining sides of center square bordered in white.  Your block should now measure 10" square.  


7.  Repeat to sew 16 blocks.  Arrange your layout taking care to alternate the direction of the white strips between vertical and horizontal.  



8.  Attach blocks by sewing (1) 10" x 1.5" white sashing strip between each block.


9.  Attach rows by sewing (1) 41.5" x 1.5" white sashing strip between each row, and one sashing row on top of the top row, and one sashing row on bottom of the bottom row.


10.  Attach last two rows of sashing to the left and right borders of the quilt top.

Quilt Back Assembly

1.  Use the 24 remaining jelly roll strips and sew together along the long edge, to result in a strip pieced rectangle measuring appx 44" x 48.5"


2.  Trim the selvedges off your strip pieced square.


3.  Cut one of your 3.5" x WOF strips and cut in half width wise, resulting in (2) 3.5" x 22" strips.  Sew each half onto each of your remaining two 3.5" x WOF strips to give you enough length to add to the trimmed edges.  Attach onto each 48.5" edge.  Your resulting quilt back should measure appx. 48.5" square


To make binding, choose 10 leftover jelly roll strips from cutting the 10" strips for your blocks.  Sew together to form scrappy binding.  

Baste, Quilt and Bind as desired.

Jo said...

Great Quilt!! It's one of my favorite projects on Bake Shop in a long time.

Alicia said...

Amazing! This is a MUST on my list! If I wanted to use a solid backing instead of using the jelly roll strips, how much material would I need?

Heidi Grohs said...

GREAT, CUTE pattern!!!

Michele said...

Super super cute and fun! I love white borders on quilts.

Jessica Kelly said...

Thanks everyone!
@Alicia-to use a solid instead of the jelly roll/charm "rings" you would cut (16) 2.5" x WOF strips (about 40" x WOF, or 1 1/8 yards), and then from each 2.5" strip subcut (2) 10" and (2) 5" strips. Hope that helps!

Deb said...

Oh Jess, this is awesome! My mom just asked me to make a quilt for her friend whose daughter is having a baby and this is just the ticket! The fabric and pattern are FAB!!

Love this design, already made 2 blocks (not much, but made them in my spare time), they're so easy to make! Thanks!

Stephanie said...

This is beautiful! I must make one!!

linda pritchard said...

love it, what a great looking quilt.

DustysMomma said...

I crossed this up with the car seat quilt idea. I used this same fabric family & made 4 squares, but used 2 different fabrics for the outside instead of the same like you did. Then to make a total of 30" long, I added leftover strips of Jungle Bungle and the off white I used for the framing. Then I had a friend embroider the baby's last initial in red for the centerpiece. I did the strippy back, and what I cut off them I used for binding. Since I used flannel instead of batting, I think it'll stand up better to winter in Denmark when I send it to my boyfriend's new nephew. :)

Hi Jessica. I am in the middle of making this quilt suing your pattern and have cut everything exactly like you wrote. I am not coming out with 10" square blocks. I'm stumped. My blocks are coming out 9.25 x 7 inches. I cannot even alternate them because they are not square. What happened?
I've repeated the steps ca
refully and am coming out with the same outcome.
