Baby Frolic Quilt — free Pattern

The weather today is delightful and I found myself nearly levitating off the chair at my pays-the-bills job. I was also levitating because I had the chance to package up my jungle-heavy, monkeying around baby quilt to the grandmother of my friend’s new baby. I love to deliver unexpected surprises!

Before the hand-off, though, I took a few pictures.



I found the monkey rattle a few months ago when I stopped in a shop that was going out of business (score!). It was perfect for my featured fabric and made it simple to package up my quilt for gifting.


As I mentioned previously, Baby Frolic was developed because I had some fabric that I couldn’t bear to cut apart. I wanted to create a pattern that let the featured fabric shine. After I paired up the featured fabric with a complementary fabric and then an accent fabric, I was ready to start on patches. I filled in those blocks with fabrics from my stash.

I think this pattern would work with many fabrics, but I found the new Jungle Fever line from Rebecca Jones at Clothworks. I think Rebecca’s adorable elephants and sloths would make a delightful Baby Frolic quilt!

We’ll also post this pattern to Favequilts!

Cindy and I want to share an evening view of the fox kits frolicking near their woodchuck hole den on the farm.

Speaking of frolicking, where’s your favorite frolic space?

      Chela – By your blog, I’d say you’re pretty good about frolicking all around the Hill Country too! Enjoy those grandbabies!

      Meg — I know, I know, but aren’t the babies cute? My dad is worried about the turkey egg population as more and more foxes appear.Thanks for spending time on our blog!

    Hi Sandy,
    Oh how lucky were you when you found that monkey rattle?!!! It just gives me the chills when a project comes together like that – it was just meant to be for sure. What a fun quilt and another free pattern. You guys are on a roll – I’m proud of you. AND those little fox kits – how how cute are they? I love how that one hops over and then sits so nicely like someone said sit – now you can have a treat. My favorite place to frolic is anyway Dominic is, out sweet boy of 8 months. I’ll do all kinds of frolicking with him anytime! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Roseanne — you are so right about frolicking with babies — nothing better than to see their joy as they discover the world. My oldest grandson is going to graduate from preK next week. Time goes by so fast!
