To be clear, "jungle quilts", cover a lot of territory. The jungle is a very big place filled with more wild birds, animals and exotic critters than any zoo on the planet can lay claim to much less fit on one small crib quilt. For that reason, you may have to narrow or refine your search for recommended patterns or jungle quilting fabric to include a specific group of wild animals or perhaps feature one specific species like monkeys, elephants or giraffes.

Some of the jungle quilt pattern pieces and instructions are for full size quilts rather than crib quilts, but most would be easily modified into sizes suitable for a baby gift.
zoo animal baby quilt is an applique quilt pattern with outlines for appliqued monkeys, parrots, kangaroos, giraffes, lions, tigers, elephants and more. The zoo animals are framed in a shaded, baby blocks border. The mitered corners and detailed jungle animal appliques might be too advanced for a beginner.

Some quilting enthusiasts, rather than being excited over the broad range of quilting fabrics that are appropriate for piecing jungle baby quilts, let the large selection bog them down in confusion over which one is best. The answer to this question is that there is no best animal to highlight for a jungle theme baby quilt. All baby animals are cute and infants seem to love sharing a room with them.
However, if baby that is to receive your jungle baby quilt as a gift has a crib that is decorated in pink or blue elephants I would suggest that you consider piecing your quilt using elephant quilt patterns or making your four patch quilt blocks from elephant pattern fabric. The same goes for any other jungle theme baby quilt. Visit the baby's nursery if you can to get ideas as to whether a safari theme quilt, a zoo baby quilt or fabrics that showcase a particular jungle animal would be the best fit.
A lot of hours and a lot of love will be sewn into your jungle baby quilt. To spend a little time on research to assist you in the selection of attractive
baby quilt fabrics and patterns just makes good sense.
