The Monkey Baby's Quilt

The Monkey Baby is three months old and here I am finally finishing a quilt just for him.
Better late than never, right!

One of my favorite baby quilts to make is the Quilt-As-You-Sew method. This isn't an heirloom 
 quilt...just a rough and tumble kind of quilt that won't cause me to freak out if it's thrown on the 
floor, spilled on, or taken to the park for a picnic. Plus, I love that it is inexpensive, easy, and fast to 
 make. What a great way to use a jelly roll or leftover strips of fabric in your stash! 

Lollipop Monkeys


I just loved this fabric, Lollipop, by Sandy Gervais!


This is the fabric on the back of the quilt...these guys remind me of my five Monkey Boys 
who love to climb, jump, and swing from anything and everything. They are truly monkeys!


I can't wait to wrap up Monkey Baby in this and snuggle him for hours!
