The Monkey Boy Creates!

A while back Monkey Boy #1 picked out some fabric for his quilt, created a design,
and drew a label for it. I finished it just in time for his birthday today.
Barbara at Coral Canyon Quilting did the stitching...sweet!

Happy Birthday to Monkey Boy #1!

The Quilt

This is the label he created which included his drawing, his signature, and the year.
I hand embroidered his design on fabric and added to the back of the quilt.
(For privacy purposes I replaced his name with "Monkey Boy")

The eye, of course, had to be red!

I think he liked it...

Happy Birthday, MB! What a wonderful gift for him. Since he played a major role in the fabrics and label, you just knew he'd love the finished quilt. May he feel the love that you put into this quilt every time he wraps it around himself!

Great quilt and it looks like he is totally thrilled with it. So fun to let him choose the fabrics and draw his own label.
