A Monkey Baby Quilt

Monkey fabric is one of my favorite things to sew with,
mainly because it makes me smile and think of The Monkey Boys.

I had a flannel jelly roll of monkey fabric in my stash and used it to make
a quilt-as-you-go blanket at a sewing group meeting a few weeks ago.
With a few extra wavy lines sewn on it, it just needed binding which I finally finished
using Superior Thread King Tut variegated orange thread...sweet!

I'm sure there's a monkey in my family who will love this!


I have a little bit of this fabric left...I'm sure there's another monkey who could use one of these.

ADORABLE! I was just looking at this fabric earlier this morning. I have a little baby boy quilt to make for a friend's grandson who is due in mid-October. It's her first grandchild and she's been my best friend since we were in kindergarten.(we won't discuss how many years ago that was, K? LOL) She's thrilled and I can't wait to hear all her stories. I have 3 grandchildren of my own so I know what a joy they can be.

Living in the area where sock monkey's were born, I'm very partial to monkeys. I'd be thrilled to take your leftover fabric.
