King of the Jungle - Born to be Wild Blog Hop

   Welcome to the first day of the

Born to be WILD 
Blog Hop!

I'm happy to kick things off with the
King of the Jungle!


Carol of Just Let Me Quilt has invited bloggers to sew something that's jungle-related
Like jungle animals, wild colors or designs, or jungle fabrics.

Thank you, Carol, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop!


I figured we had to start this blog hop with the "KING"!


To make my lion, I gathered my fabrics by Jackie Kunkle for 
Island Batik called Ancient Etchings.
These Island Batik fabrics were perfect for the Alice the Alpaca I made for the fall 2019 quilt market and I knew my "King" would be dressed well in the fabrics too.

The pattern is Larry the Lion from the Funky Friends Factory.
He's 11" tall and was super fun to make.

His booty and tail are as cute as he is...



Be sure to check out all of the bloggers that are
Born to be Wild!


I say it every time - by the end of the blog hop, you will have more ideas than time.
I always end up that way...


Have a "roaring" great day!!
