I no longer recall why I decided to make a "cheater" quilt for this particular baby, but I actually really like the way it turned out. It wasn't made of a panel designed to become a "cheater" cloth or a baby quilt, rather, I just cut a piece of this beautiful fabric, approximately equal to one repetition. And when I bordered it with the pink fabric I had, which happened to match perfectly, it looked like a perfect little girl jungle quilt.
I hand quilted it, just following the outline of the fabric design, and that became the quilt I gave to the little girl adopted by my friends Jan and Mou.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures at all of Makaela, and not even any of her older brother, Jaden. But I know they are both thriving, happy, good looking kids, who are well loved, and who love each other very much.
