Hush My Darling

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight...

Sometimes when I'm quilting, lyrics to songs pop into my head. While quilting yesterday, I thought of my niece and her new king, a beautiful baby boy. The next thing I knew I was singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight from The Lion King over and over again.

My back fabric is a jungle scene. To tack down the binding, I used the arrows decorative stitch. These jungle creatures look friendly and kind, but they need to be kept corralled so that the new king always has pleasant dreams.

This was a fun quilt. Most of the blues came from the stash of fabrics that my mother had sent me. So, I can say that Great Grandma had a bit in making of this quilt. Piecing was done on my Eldredge Two Spools, Quilting on Davis NVF, and decorative stitching on the Singer 224.


  1. I have a baby quilt pending and that gives me an idea too.

    1. It's a fun quilt that comes together very quickly.
