I have three grandsons (my Monkey Boys) who are the usual recipients of a lot of my quilted projects just because they are so forgiving of my quilty mistakes. The two oldest monkeys recently told me that the youngest monkey doesn't have as many quilts/blankets as they do and that I needed to make him more. So.......I decided to practice on some applique projects and make Monkey Baby a new blanket (he'll be called Monkey Boy #3 when the new monkey #4 arrives in November.) Among all the mistakes, there are a few spots that were actually (probably) sewn correctly on the little monkey that will eventually be a finished quilt. Next time I'll do better and use different color threads, different stitches, etc., etc., etc.
