Welcome to the jungle – mod mountains playmat quilt

Finished this baby Mod Mountains quilt. Was a lovely sew, it’s such a simple but effective Suzy Quilts pattern – love how graphic it is!

This quilt was designed for ‘tummy time’ so baby George will have different colours and textures to entertain him while he’s attempting the truly super human effort of trying to roll onto his back!

This pattern is fab because it is such a great way of using up scraps. Originally the plan was to be a bit more of a rainbow spectrum but then I found a pale green bed sheet from the British Heart Foundation charity (thrift) shop and remnants from a friend’s childhood bed cover (which I had previously hacked to pieces for her hen do scrap book dress) and so the jungle theme was born!

fabric was all scraps from other projects including a corduroy skirt, shiny rose gold spot and several other quits. The backing was a fantastic scrap bin find at my local sewing shop. It’s this beautiful curtain weight cotton (that’s a type of fabric right?) which is the perfect pale green for my jungle theme!

I was eager to get this finished so kept the quilting nice and simple, just stitch-in-the-ditch to frame the peaks. Also did my first attempt at hand quilting on this project tracing the shapes of the mountains into smaller ‘hills’.

Little George won’t want to roll over with all this excitement in front of his nose!

What was also great was taking part in the mod mountains sew along – Suzy produces all these really helpful resources and there is hot debate in the Facebook group on everything from binding methods to the eternal metric vs imperial debate.
