Blueberry's Quilt

Here are six of the squares for Blueberry's two-year-old quilt. It is built around a cute jungle print:

A close-up of one of the squares. Each square is made of a six-inch (finished) square, a 3 x 6-inch rectangle, and a 9 x 6-inch rectangle. I positioned the pieces in different configurations to make a more random set:

Here is half of the finished top. Notice the row of sashing rectangles between each row of squares. Aren't the colors fun?
I am going to put a border around the top of the bright blue "leaf" print. Then, for the backing:
How cool to find Thomas fabric on the clearance table?
Blueberry, who will be two years old on Valentine's Day, is getting ready to move into his "big boy" room, because his new baby brother or sister is arriving just a few weeks from now.
So, I'd better hurry!
