I am linking this up to the May Goal at Elm Street Quilts.
My goal was to quilt my Jungle Baby Quilt top – making a backing for it and trying out using both wool and cotton batting to see what that is like.
As it turns out Baby Louie decided to enter the world two months early, but he is doing really well and while still in hospital is going from strength to strength. It was lovely to see the hospital has darling little baby quilts it uses for these special little ones.

Using the double batting makes it a little thicker. I thought it would be good for putting on the floor for Louie to lay on and play on later as he grows. I stitched in the ditch to quilt most of it and tried a little fmq around the border.

As I have so many left overs from quilts I have begun to think about using some of them for backing and so this is my first time doing that. Nice feeling to use them up!
